Interactive Environments Edition 2020-2021

In the 2020-2021 edition of the Interactive Environments minor we focussed on the following question: how can interactive environments make the a city park a more lively place?


LINK is a seating arrangement in the Mekelpark. The interaction of the installation emphasizes the connection between people sitting together.


Harmony is an installation located near the central pathways of the Mekelpark. The installation is tracking the movements of people around it, Harmony translates this input into sounds and projections, allowing users to fully immerse in the experience.


Guido guides its visitors through transitional spaces. With its mesh of nodes hanging above the visitors’ heads, the installation creates a path for the user by opening up. While being guided through the space at a safe social distance, Guido provides its visitors a short escapist moment.
