This portable installation is an interaction device for young children, consisting of 6mm MDF laser cut pieces which can be assembled and disassembled following a sequenced tag system. The entire construction system relies on pressure joints for structural integrity, eliminating the use of adhesives, dowels, screws or nails.
The 150 x 75 centimetre box frame supports three "landscapes" at different heights. These "landscapes" act as a surface and support frame for a series of interactions and games accessed through a screen running along the perimeter of the box.
Interactions and games were carefully chosen and strategically placed in response to ergonomics and the level of inquisitiveness of children at various ages. For instance, babies may use the frame to pull themselves up, toddlers will use it responding to colour, sound and touch, and older children will respond to games and videos.
