Sandbox Berlin: collaborative field of interaction between digital and physical space
22.09.2007 by sujaschko

Use your hands! Collaborate and Create!

Workshop 3 – 5 October 2007
and Exhibition 6 – 14 October 2007

The Sandbox is a place available to all inhabitants of Second Life as a test platform and experimental field. Each user can produce and programme new objects with their own individual textures. The Sandbox is a clash of cultures - of digital and analogue clichés - a place of interaction in every form.

Sandbox Berlin translates this field of experimentation into public space in Real Life. In a three-day workshop, production of custom objects in a spontaneous and collaborative process will be tested in Real Life. Everyone is invited to join us on a deserted area, formerly part of the Berlin Wall, in the Mitte district, to build whatever they want. Tools, wood and other materials will be provided by Sandbox Berlin, so that flexible groups can quickly design and materialize objects.

Let’s test the Sandbox as a collaborative field of interaction in Real Life! Which phenomena will find their way into reality from the digital world? How will digital and physical space interact? How will the city react to a Sandbox?
