Walk Walk Dance

Enchanting the post-COVID city

Walking makes you happy; dancing makes you happier. 

Walk Walk Dance is a series of interactive music-making lines, changing the way we walk (or wait in a line) into a street party. 

Play with physical distancing rules, one, two, three steps at a time. Because every city should have a dancing strategy.

Features

Lines can be made of paint, chalk or adhesive, and don’t feature any technology. Different colors represent sets of instruments and invite people to dance with the music they triggered. 

A modular system connects a series of protecting cases with sensors and speakers, spaced by flower beds.

This is the best time ever to think of a walkable city.

Interactive Principles

Stepping on a single line triggers notes that play either

  • once (Stimulates moving, traversing, re-triggering)
  • or on a loop (Encourages stopping, keeping one foot on a line)
