The Pop-up Fleapit is a giant version of The Fleapit which can be exhibited in a shop window. The red velvet cinema curtains frame a screen which invites you to interact with the cinema via your smartphone. A small speaker allows the audio to be transmitted through the glass of the window. Once you gain control of the installation you can open and close the curtains and select films.

Exhibted at Encounters Film Festival 2013, featuring 90second films from DepicT!
