Kontakt and Stopkontakt are two similar installations, based on the same principles, but aiming for a different audience. They both are interactive installations that focus on making contact with others, resulting in a variety of physical and/or auditive outputs. Its purpose is to close several electronical circuits, using your body as a conductor between different touch/conductivity sensitive points. Depending on the location of presentation, we have changed the interface accordingly. Walls, staircases and sinks become part of the installation as they are turned into touchpoints, resulting in a very spatial experience. This piece celebrates collaboration and cooperation, as a singular visitor can't close all the possible circuits alone.

'Stopkontakt' is focussed on children and generates more physical outputs compared to 'Kontakt', which is more sound based and less direct responsive as it is build for an older audience. Related links: Karmen and Making Things. [via Regine on we-make-money-not-art]
