KMA Light Games

KMA is a collaboration between UK media artists Kit Monkman and Tom Wexler. I am not sure with partner Tom, but I aint seein' "A" in Tom nor Wexler. But definitely there is an "A" in this proposal for Great Street Games. How come it's only now that they thought of this, when kids and weird adults have been stomping on dance pads without shame?

Come and take part in a series of outdoor games, taking place simultaneously in three North East locations; Gateshead, Sunderland and Middlesbrough. Each area competes against the others in this world-first event created by media artists KMA.Projected light and thermal-imaging technology are used to create jaw-dropping interactive playing arenas in which the physical movements of players determine the outcome of the games. Develop your game-playing skills as you progress through a number of levels to help your area to victory or to simply have fun. Games repeat in ten minute cycles. Great Street Games is open to everyone and does not exclude those with limited mobility... (excerpts from Great Street Games)

Well, this one has nothing to do with dancing, but the thought of playing with or through beautiful temporal elements is totally dope. Imagine wearing Neon colors to diasappear in those lights. It makes you think of virtual worlds like Lawnmower man...which is so aaaancient in Gossip Girl years.
