Mood Pinball at the V&A’s Digital Design Weekend

We will be in London this weekend (21 – 22 September) to showcase Mood Pinball to thousands of visitors at the Digital Design Weekend at the V&A.  The annual event is a brilliant (and free) chance for members of the public to experience innovative workshops, talks and demonstrations at the intersection of art and technology. Come and see Mood Pinball artists and makers Ben and Edie and BOM’s Curator Louise, we will be in the Sackler Foyer at the V & A.

When playing the digital Pinball game visitors are invited to experience the world of autistic artist (and BOM Fellow) Edie Jo Murray. Directing the ball, you travel around an urban environment, bumping into people and visiting locations. New interactions and new environments result in changing moods, while synthesised datasets which have influenced these changes of state, and perhaps your wellbeing, are revealed.

Mood Pinball was developed by Ben Neal, Edie Jo Murray and Harmeet Chagger-Khan.

Commissioned by the Open Data Institute (ODI) in partnership with the University of Southampton DataStories project, supported by the EPSRC, grant number EP/PO25676/1. Produced by BOM
