DROPSTUFF.nl presents The Fair Grounds: Popular culture meets high tech and high art!

The Fair Grounds is an artistic project by media design collective DROPSTUFF.nl, consisting of a collection of artworks where amusement rides are presented as art installations. A new narrative has been added to pre-existing attractions and old forms of entertainment have been updated. Likewise, new concepts and designs have been outfitted with traditional stories and customs. The result is a fairground where every ride has been modified, enhanced or completely redesigned: popular culture meets high tech and high art!
