FourceLabs talk about Wip ‘n’ Kip, a playful installation for Stekker Fest, an annual electronic music festival based in Utrecht. Players of Wip ‘n’ Kip use adult-sized spring riders to control a chicken on a large screen. They race each other to the finish while at the same time trying to stay ahead of a horde of pursuing monsters. Wip ‘n’ Kip is a strange but effective mashup of video game, carnival ride and performance. It is part of the PLAY Pilots project, commissioned by the city and province of Utrecht, which explore the applications of play in the cultural industry.
