By drawing in the sounds of a true jungle, this allows New Yorkers and visitors to experience a new, hybrid jungle that is unique to Times Square.”
— Tim Tompkins, President, Times Square Alliance

An intimate voyage through the Amazon jungle from busiest intersection on Earth.

Soundwalk Collective and Times Square Arts used Motive.io to create a interactive multi-sensory art installation which transforms Times Square into the Amazon. Fred Adam from the GPS Museum collaborated with artist Stephan Crasneanscki, explorer David de Rothschild, Audio-Technica, and CXA+ART, to produce a participatory audio experience that heightens awareness of climate change.

To journey through a soundscape of the Amazon ecosystem which is superimposed on 8-square blocks area of Times Square visitors download the JUNGLE-IZED mobile app and borrow a pair of premium Audio-Technica headphones from the official JUNGLE-IZED kiosk.

The experience features recordings by famed sound artist Francisco López.

As visitors walk throughout Times Square, the voices of Shipibo shamans and narration by Amazon experts Jeremy Narby and Daniel Pinchbeck guide them along a jungle tour and into a conversation with nature. 

Each street represents a different time of the day or the night in the Amazon sound environment. You will move deeper into the night as you walk North, and deeper into the rainforest as you walk East or West, until you will find the Amazon river.

ConQuest is a new way to add story and magic to your event experience

 
 
 

client: Silverstring Media, Switch United

ConQuest brings an interactive game-like experience to a convention through a mobile app, location-based technologies, physical objects, and live actors.

Interactive stories and gameplay create richer event experiences and enhance the festival.

ConQuest directs people to great content, gives them something to do while waiting in lines, and allows exhibitors to connect directly with attendees.

At the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival attendees played a game to curate the prize bundle of art collected from exhibitors. They also learn about art history, create their own comics, and uncover the story of the mysterious figure called the Patron.

Available on iOS and Android.

Let's talk about what we can do for you!

Shape Up Battle Run for client Ubisoft

 

Turn your run into a game.

Never miss a step with SHAPE UP BATTLE RUN, the mobile app that turns boring interval running into a game that keeps you motivated while you pound the pavement.

Players can select Story Mode, which puts runners in exciting scenarios such as a mad-scramble through an apocalyptic city, a spy adventure in Paris, or Quick Race mode, which provides 5 to 30-minute running programs designed to keep the rhythm and level up your fitness.

For a more competitive run, connect with friends using Ubisoft's UPlay or recruit one of the Shape Up coaches and challenge them to a friendly competition to see who can run the furthest. With every step, runners accumulate Points and Bolts, and have their stats tracked in their overall in-game fitness program.

Available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
