Artist Statement

Interactive Soundscape (2014)

2K-Reality is an audio installation that invites basketball players to play within an acoustic environment, drawing on the conventions of NBA TV broadcasts and sports-sim video games. Players and spectators obtain a different experience of performance, motivation, aspiration and fantasy by playing with this immersive real-world, digital hybrid.

  • Tim Ryan is an urban interaction designer focused on the intersection of sport, art, design and technology in public space. A PhD Candidate at RMIT University’s Exertion Games Lab in Melbourne, Australia, Tim’s research informs his speculative designs for a near-future in which ubiquitous computing reconfi gures and augments recreational play-spaces in dense urban environments.
