“Shopping in 1 Minute” ready for ARS!
Shopping in 1 minute is an artgame that is playfully criticizing the increasing desire of society for consumption. Our inspiration for creating the artgame came from the craziness of people during the sales period: long lines in front of supermarkets, stone-age-style behavior, lots of useless products, etc.
Thus, we are inviting audience to train for the next sales period. A player has to scan as many products as possible during a minute. As a reward each player will receive a ticket with bonus points according to his score.
The project was developed in collaboration with Mar Canet Sola
Another aspect of the project was the selection of media, our aim was to replace a computer screen and integrate various devices for making the installation more rich. Thus, we came up with arcade-like screen that we built on our own. In the box are a LED-display, 7sigment LEDs, Arduino, light and an imagine (many thanx to Sabina Dallu!) of special light-sensitive paper.
