Interactive installation 2017. Orginally commissioned by QV Melbourne, Australia.
Colour Me Beautiful is a new interactive artwork by Tine Bech Studio. Featuring five colourful runways leading to a vivid portrait landscape, Colour Me Beautiful invites the public to play and interact. The interactive installation captures images of audience members on each runway; live posting them onto a large screen – colouring you beautiful. The work invites people of all ages to walk the coloured grass runway, strike a pose and be captured in a bright maze of colour.
Posing for the camera is one of life’s familiar social activities. It connects us and creates shared memories. The act of having a photo taken evokes a sense of play and performance for children and adults alike. Jump into the limelight at the end of the runways and smile!
Transforming both the environment and human behaviour through the creative possibilities of play making, Colour Me Beautiful will transform public spaces into an interactive digital art playground. Tine Bech’s artistic vision is to explore how culture, technology and play intersect to shape public spaces.

Tines work was perfect for the space and very impressive. We had a huge attendance at the festival and visitors particularly enjoyed taking selfies in front of the work – much of which was shared on social media. There were so many movies taken, it was amazing.
