SAVING WATER

Facade
The Hypovereinsbank, on Stephanplatz in Karlsruhe. A rather inconspicuous building, which is characterized by the horizontal elements of the facade and offers many possibilities for mapping. Due to its location opposite Stephanplatz, the already existing infrastructure and open space is an optimal basis for a crowd game.

Gameplay
Work together, avoid dangers and direct the water to the dry earth. Nature will thank you for it!

With the Projection Mapping Crowd Game, PONG.Li Studios brought the topic of sustainability to Karlsruhe's city center. The players (up to 6 per game round) were invited to jointly control platforms in the form of a facade projection via an app so that as little water as possible is wasted. The interactive large-scale projection is based on the award-winning facade game „Capture the Pyramid“, which PONG.Li Studios developed back in 2015 for the first Castle Light Games. From September 17th till October 17th, 2021, the projection could be seen on the facade of the HypoVereinsbank Karlsruhe.

This is one of twelve media art projects selected as part of the 2020 UNESCO City of Media Arts Karlsruhe project funding program and will be shown as part of the Seasons of Media Art exhibition at ZKM Karlsruhe.
