Bringing it all in one artistically energetic package is Urban Conga , a collective group of creators activating urban spaces through interactive installations.
“The Urban Conga stimulates urban spaces through exploration, activation, and above all interaction,” say organizers. “The objective is to spark conversation between the public realm and the human body through interactive installations.
“Some of our projects that we are working on or have are an interactive facade mock up, it is a 6′x3′ interactive wall that follows the passer and begins to communicate with the person. Another is 3rex an interactive set of pieces that one can use to build anything they want. We also have some interactive projections that we plan on doing and a few more projects we will present that are in the works.”
You can learn more about Urban Conga on their Kickstarter page where they’re working to raise funds to “expand and activate an array of public spaces within various cities. …Our philosophy is to inject care into local communities by accentuating and enhancing the beauty of the current urban conditions!
We’re delighted Urban Conga is dancing their way to Tampa Bay Mini Maker Faire 2013!
