Digital Art Live is an interactive visual art space which invites you to interact with a screen to become a part of a living artwork. The exhibition is not complete until people physically activate the screen through movement.

With Rollerocaster, the audience’s faces become imprinted on the screen, they create their own ride by moving their body to determine the direction and speed of the car. The abstract graphics and the immersive sound enhance the experience of being on a rollercoaster, creating a truly visceral experience.

By taking this carnival experience out of context, Rollercoaster invites the viewer to reflect on the nature of the experience itself. This experience is akin to video games and one step removed from the traditional theme park home of a rollercoaster ride.
