This project will transform a series of locations across Bristol into pockets of interactive audio-visual art that will invite Bristolians to re-experience their daily environment as one of joy and play. These Transportals are carefully placed in corners, junctions and edges of otherwise mundane architectural sites across the city: they are located in areas that are well populated, making them easily discoverable during everyday life.

Each site will display a projection-mapped graphic animation designed to gracefully transform the architectural feature into a playful object, and will also have accompanying music, all of which will be created specifically for each location. Once discovered by passersby in their basic “sleep” state, the installations will come to life and respond to proximity and body movements by revealing more engaging and active levels of content in a game-like way as various interactive possibilities are explored.
