• THE BRIDGE – Museumplein Amsterdam – La Biennale di Venezia 2013 During summer 2013 DROPSTUFF created a special ‘bridge’ between the reopened cultural heart of the Netherlands, the Museumplein in Amsterdam, and Venice, the city where this summer the 55th most famous event for contemporary art in the world, La Biennale di Venezia will be organised. The bridge has been formed by a live connection between two large public screens that were connected live through internet, and by using a special device; the Kinect. At the two sites, visitors could see and meet each other, and play a game together on the spot. Currently, eight artistic games have been developed by Dutch designers and student groups who were selected based on entries in an open competition.
Using the technology of the Kinect, also known from the X-Box game console and the internet, people can communicate in the streets through movement. Through the game applications designed by the developers, players can together form a famous group of sculptures, perform a dance or even ‘leap’ between Amsterdam and Venice.
