Light Bug explores the playground of the future with a digitally enhanced swing that brings responsive light, colour and sound to festivals and events and future playgrounds.  It invites people of all ages to play, through digital interactivity, in both imaginative and physical ways.

The playground swing is one of life’s simplest pleasures. Feeling your suspended body move through space, rising and falling in a fixed arc that flows first with then against, the pull of gravity, is both thrilling and reassuring. It’s a magical, interactive reinvention of the swing that brings additional dimensions of light, colour and sound to the experience.

Tine Bech Studio merges art with the digital language of technology to create stunning visual projects where human experiences are at the centre. With a PhD in ‘Play’, Tine Bech is a multidisciplinary artist who creates innovative interactive art where participation, curiosity, and communications are essential facets of the experience. Born in Denmark, she currently lives and works in London where she creates innovative interactive projects which excite and inspire people around the world. Her work explores the potential for transforming environments and human behaviour through the creative possibilities of play and game making.
