In the project these two issues are brought together in one concept: a mobile installation which stimulates social contact, activates and creates awareness. A container sized installation that can occupy urban grounds in between demolition and construction. The installation exists of two mobile container sized objects that are placed on deserted building areas across town. The installation translates the movement in the area in music. It also gives the opportunity to communicate by overlay of live feedback of both playgrounds. The more movement the clearer the footage of the playground becomes. In other words the more effort the larger the audience. This augmented reality application facilitates for an explorative interaction. The more heat in the battle, the sharper the connection and the more sound the installation will produce.
