5 Courts


Played Across Five Cities

5 Courts is a revolutionary multi-player, multi-site game and arts space played across five cities: York, Leeds, Bradford and Sheffield in October 2006. Players use their own bodies to send balls of projected light across the playing space, aiming for goals representing the other cities. Entirely interactive, it's a competition to see which city has the least light balls in their square when the time runs out. Designed to be aesthetically beautiful and great fun to play and watch, games are a minute long and run throughout the night.

5 Courts was conceived, designed and programmed by digital media artists KMA (Kit Monkman & Tom Wexler). The piece was commissioned by Illuminate as part of the Light Night festival. [blogged by Martin Rieser on Mobile Audience]
