Tine Bech Studio creates public art, light art, interactive installations, sculptures and games, which connect people for shared moments of discovery and wonder.
We merge art and design with the digital language of technology to create stunning visual projects that consider culture, audience interaction, and physical space.
Our work has been presented in numerous museums and venues, as well as many other public sites and contexts, both in the UK and internationally.
Tine Bech Studio believes that culture creates communities, art belongs in our everyday world and is for everyone.
We connect and activate people and places – our installations can reach up to 80,000 interactions with visitors over a two-week period.
Our artworks provide a deeply social dimension. “I have been there and have never talked to so many strangers”, “It makes you sociable”, “I had so much fun I forgot to be embarrassed”.
Tine Bech Studio explores the relationship between people, physical space and history to create powerful visual projects.
Our multifaceted artwork creates flourishing communities. We know from Play Theory that play is part of our social fabric and lies at the core of many social bonds.
Tine is a leading light in a new wave of artists whose currency is experience, shared and celebrated. She has the potential to create experiences where participation, interaction and sharing have impacts on people and places that revitalize civic life.

We create impactful visual installations to make attractive social spaces where people want to gather.
Our photogenic artworks are enormously shareable and posted in high numbers on social media.
We Believe was a breathtakingly beautiful experience and a profound artistic exploration of our attitudes to the city’s public spaces.
-Jacob Bundsgaard, Mayor of Aarhus Municipality
Tine shows how the public realm can be successfully activated – buildings, squares, bridges, rivers, gardens, offices and foyers are transformed into opportunities for participation, curiosity and communication.
Visitors often stay longer than they had anticipated – we observe that people will have ‘just one last go’ many times. People often come back several times and bring friends.
Tine Bech Studio creates wellbeing. “I have never seen an artwork where everyone smiles“, “No one leaves without a smile”. We now know from neuroscience that ‘play lights up the brain’ and creates positive emotion, which alters our feelings and makes us more resilient, happier and productive.
I think the world’s public spaces need more of your playful social interaction, especially at this time in history when people seem so divided.

The We Believe project was one of the most popular works during the European Capital of Culture, Aarhus 2017. It was seen from afar by over 150,000 people and lots of people talked about it on social media.

Thank you so much for your stunning work at Reykjavik City Hall. Its fantastic, people love it, so do I. Its a major hit in the city and we are so proud to have had you here
-Ingi Thor Jónsson, Reykjavík City Hall
I believe that play is important to society as a whole; it is part of our social fabric and lies at the core of many social bonds. I don’t define play as being only for children. I view play culturally and as part of adaptation. Our own evolution and survival as a species shows the centrality of play” says Bech.
See some of the projects we made. There are many more and lots coming up
