Anisandbox is an interactive installation comissioned by Carl Goodman for the Gameworld exhibition at Laboral centro del arte.
It is based on the Moviesandbox project as a modification of the game Unreal Tournament 2004.
Using a device called "Gametrak", visitors can animate a custom designed character just like a marionette. An additional guitar hero controller makes the second character in the background strum his guitar and the main character's feet start to dance. Different events can be triggered by performing distinct gestures - cameras switch and light effects fill the screen - to allow for your very own simple music video.
