PLAY ME - Installation Competition

PLAY ME is a striking installation that engages viewers to participate in the GE Garages: Making Things experience. Visitors are encouraged to participate in the act of modifying the installation. The multifaceted structure is composed of cells supported by three-dimensional cradles. By moving cells within the system, the user initiates a series of events: inhabitation, display, meeting, sharing, creating and presentation. Through a set of key rules and active participation, a community is formed. The viewer is stimulated to alter the configuration of the cells and to create endless eye-catching events within the space.

PLAY ME is composed of vertical three-dimensional cradles that hold
and are held by secondary structural elements, derivative of diamond geometry. The stationary cradles form a framework in which the cells can travel. All elements are connected using laser cut dowel joint technology, imperative to their structural character. When compiled together they generate a self-sufficient, stand alone, three- dimensional structure.
