The Village Screen at this year's Glastonbury Festival was a unique collaboration led by the Region’s 2012 Creative Programmer, Glastonbury Festival, Team South West and Relays (Legacy Trust UK programme) and including the UK’s network of Creative Programmers, screen agencies and the BBC Big Screen Live Sites team, featuring Pervasive Media Studio Resident Tarim with his Instant Graffiti which was developed as a Media Sandbox 2008 commissioned project.
Tarim creates Media Playgrounds- installations which people can both play with and build new and different places to play in. Designed around a system called PTTP (Power To The People) that gives people the ability to play using many
sorts of gadgets; mobile phones, laptops, WiImotes and public access kiosks as well as the ability to create new games which work with existing playgrounds. Current areas of development include Instant Graffiti, an Etch-a-Sketch style projection on to both buildings and screens which people can draw with using a mobile connection or create new single-player and multi-player experiences.
