Child’s Play No. 9was a collaboration between ICDC and Yr 8 pupils from Shorefields School exploring space. Inspired by games to communicate navigation and journeys, participants developed the concept of a virtual 3 dimensional space, populated by visual and audio content created by participants, which could be navigated through via electronic sensors. The resulting installation was exhibited at Liverpool’s Writing on the Wall festival and the project was disseminated via conference presentations at FACT and Tate Gallery Liverpool and a written article in A’N’D magazine.
