Portable Pixel Playground is brought to you by folly
This unique project is a playground for a new generation. Not only does it tap into the national mindset of getting children active and using technology in a more healthy way, but it also introduces them to digital art as every item of play equipment is also a piece of specially commissioned digital artwork.
Clare Gannaway, Portable Pixel Playground project manager for folly says: "Portable Pixel Playground is fast becoming one of the North West's favourite attractions. It's a unique project and a digital and artistic a first for the region".
Comments from visitors to previous events include, "Interactive art is so universally enjoyable, it's awesome, but being freely available to the public like this is uncommon. I want more!", "We enjoyed the variety of resources: tactile, visual, stimulating. Excellent very impressed" and "Very visual, intriguing even for someone with little technological knowledge".
Portable Pixel Playground is a flagship project for folly, and with funding until 2010 from Big Lottery Fund's Playful Ideas programme, the project is set to grow and develop as it tours Lancashire and Cumbria.
