what we did

The installation consists of five main interactive experiences that use various sensors, open source, wearable and digital DIY technologies (Arduino). These technologies are affordable and can offer a variety of hardware solutions and versatility.

The Enchanted Forest

The Enchanted Forest is an interactive installation for children 0-10 years and their grownups. It prioritises children’s engagement by weaving together children’s ideas with fairy folktales, myths and open source interactive technologies, to create a space for playful imaginings, interactions, performance and storytelling.

It serves as an example of merging tradition theatre craft with technology to enhance children’s agency through active participation. It draws from total and immersive theatre to create a ‘performative installation’ where performers, storytellers and ‘enchanted’ scenography performs alongside children. It uses the power of storytelling and make-believe.
