Installation B – Blind spot or dark places
Two interactive and connected game boards will be installed on the second floor of the Tøjhus Museum. The squares will be in a variety of colours and designs. The game can be played by two players at a time. The interactive boards will be activated by the player treading on a square with, for instance, the text “start up” or “show care”, “seduce”, “lie”, “pry”, “humiliate”, and so on. The second player will react in response on the other board. The game is conceived as a psychological exploration of relations and reactions and challenges the players to discover when the “war” can begin or be avoided in the individual player. The players’ faces will be filmed along the way and via a special programme the computer will come up with suggestions as to what emotional state the players are in, e.g. “surprised”, “happy”, “sad”, “angry” and so on. The data will be shown on a large screen.
