Peepboardpleasure is an interactive video installation that provides a fun participatory experience for members of the public:

 

Peepboardpleasure is inspired by the idea of seaside soakers, but here the illustrations of traditional seaside soakers come to life; They are replaced by projected video footage.

Installed in a city street Peepboardpleasure invites passers by to poke their head through the holes in the screen, thus turning them into dancing movie stars. Rather than passively watching projections as an observer, the piece offers the public a chance to be truly involved in the work.

Peepboardpleasure is a peep-board with a twist - poke your head through the peephole and watch as the illustrations around you come to life. Moving images magically envelop you in a world where you become a dancing flapper, a roaring lion or an overweight taxi driver.

Installed in a busy city street Peepbardpleasure is a looping installation that anyone can play with - a mischievous mix of projection mapping, dance, film, object, animation and a lot of fun!
