Bored of aimless scrolling? Looking for something fun & engaging to do? Explore these 3 amazing interactive art experiences
Ahead of Frequency Festival, which starts 20th October in Lincoln, UK, we’ve compiled a list of three of our favourite interactive art experiences on the web (with absolutely no bias, promise…).
1. Mix the City
Ridiculously addictive and surprisingly pleasant to listen to, this website lets you mix musical delights from across the globe to create unique songs that’ll have you bopping around the room. From Hamburg to Dehli, the groove is strong with this one.
2. HistoLyrical: a dynamic journey of contemplation
One of our own commissioned projects, artists Ben & Steph explore the idea of contemplation in our media-saturated, social media-obsessed society. Create your own dynamic visual poetry made up of real quotes pulled from Facebook.
In their own words:
HistoLyrical is an interactive moving image experience where users can recall snippets of Facebook activity from the lead up to the EU Referendum vote. These snippets scroll across footage shot from the window of some of the most scenic train journeys in the UK. A range of content becomes jumbled together, complementing and clashing in equal degree, with the intention of creating a meditative experience punctuated by moments of disruption and distraction.
3. Weave Silk
A classic in the interactive art world, Weave Silk is a mainstay for those looking to pass their time with a little creative flair. Design stunning works in seconds with this highly customisable software. But be warned, once you weave, you may never leave.
Enjoyed our arty offerings? There’ll be plenty more like this available at Frequency Festival, starting 20th October. Follow us on Twitter or Facebook to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the fun.
