New York-based studio Snarkitecture has created Bounce, an immersive and interactive installation along the Hong Kong waterfront. The installation underscores Snarkitecture’s investigation of the boundaries between art and architecture — a theme present throughout the Fun House exhibition currently on view in Washington DC.
This time Snarkitecture used the concept of ‘bouncy ball’ to create a surreal interactive playground. The visitors are invited to roll, lift and toss hundreds of enlarged 300%, 1-meter diameter white “bouncy ball” in the outdoor stadium. The stadium is also an iconic cage structure defined by a series of white steel frames. The nature of the public art installation encourages visitors to create their own unique playing experiences. Kids and adults alike will enjoy their moments in this remarkable stadium.
Echoing the theme of Bounce, the Ocean Centre has been invaded by large white and silver spheres in an installation titled “Gallery by the Harbour,” inviting visitors to photograph and interact with a surreal supersized playground. Besides, the gallery is also selling the limited edition merchandise of the exhibition which includes Bounce tee, pin and bouncy balls.
Meanwhile, inside the atrium of the nearby Ocean Terminal, children under 10 years old are offered an “enchanting and imaginative Eyeball Maze” where they can explore a variety of challenging games.
The Bounce installations will be open to the public until September 2nd 2018 at Harbour City, Hong Kong.
