Saving Water, 2020/2021

“Repair the irrigation machine as fast as possible and waste as little water as possible in the process!” This is the goal of the video game Saving Water, which was developed by the Karlsruhe PONG.Li Studios. Prominently projected onto the facade of the HypoVereinsbank and visible from afar, this crowd game — a game for anyone and everyone present on the square — directs attention to the themes of sustainability and resources. Via an app, you can oversee the construction of a water pipeline so that as little water as possible is wasted. This interactive projection is based on the prize-winning facade game Capture the Pyramid, which PONG.Li Studios developed in 2015 for the first Schlosslichtspiele Festival, spectacular projections mapped onto the long facade of the baroque Karlsruhe Palace and other buildings.

Artist

The artist group and creative agency PONG.Li Studios was founded in Karlsruhe in 1997 and is internationally present at media art exhibitions, opera and theater productions with its large-screen projections as well as architectural mappings. Audioreactive, interactive, and generative projections are as much a part of their oeuvre as productions and spatial installations. In 2015, they took part in the Schlosslichtspiele Karlsruhe with the interactive facade projection Capture the Pyramid. Their studio is located in the western part of Karlsruhe.
