Play Beyond Play opened at the Museum of Technology in Stockholm in 2018. We were commissioned to make an immersive game experience a »Game Portal« in one of the exhibition halls. The breif was to base the experience on 12 computer games in four categories: Vector, Pixel, Polygon and Naturalistic. To get the immersive experience we decided to work with project mapping on the walls. We came up with the idea of an ”accordion” to base the spatial idea on.

We made a storyboard divided into 12 units of 15 seconds each. And choose scenes from the selected games. We wanted to keep the take outs from the games untouched and projected them on the flat part of the wall. We made a graphic interpretation of each game covering the rest of the room. The project mapping and adaptation to the space was made in collaboration with Joel Dittrich.

To us this was a symbol of time and space being elastic in a digital world and gave us interesting walls to project on to.

We also made the overall graphics for the exhibition including colour scheme, illustrations, logotype, animations and sign system.
