Hakuna Matata

"From the day we arrived on the planet, 
And the blinking step into the sun, 
There's more to see than can ever be seen,
More to do, than can ever be done."

I do know that Hakuna Matata is a different song, with a different message.

So i'm thinking about user interaction in a different way these days. With "The Box" it was about hiding away the content, with the user having to curious and also willing in order to receive the content hidden within.

I'm now working with the concept of user generated content, user interaction, but with no content.

That doesn't make sense does it?

2 interaction stations. A + B

User 1 approaches station A and "interacts" in some way. The results of this "interaction" are represented and displayed at station B. User 1 doesn't see the result of their efforts.

Meanwhile, User 2 approaches station B and sees / experiences the work of user 1. User 2 then "interacts" with station B from which content is displayed at station A. User 2 doesn't see their own efforts.

Crude Setup sketch
So these 2 stations could either be separated geographically or temporally.

A connection to another space, realtime relations, a Symbiotic structure (well something like that)

A delay in time, and echo of the past, a message for the future.

The Circle of Life

In order to be entertained, you must participate and share.

A collaboration.
