Tines projects are created in the Tine Bech Studio in South East London, where she collaborate with programmers, electronic engineers, fabricators, and architects in the creative process.
Tine Bech Studio works with culture, technology and physical space. We use play and game making to engage people with each other and with places. Our work fits museums and galleries, in public spaces, at arts festivals, and at business places.
We believe culture creates communities and that play connects us. We believe that art is for anyone and that art belongs everywhere.
The studio creates:
- Work that create connections between people, places, and objects
- Interactive art that surprises and intrigues audiences
- Public art that uses the cities urban infrastructure
- Digital projects that is defined by a strong visual and sculptural presence
- Stunning Light Installations
- Participation – designing with people rather than for people.
- Playable Cities (smart cities, sharing cities) − projects that explore how culture, technology and play can shape the future of our cities.
- Playful interactions and social game making.
- Tine has extensive practical and theoretical (PhD) experience in playful interaction and social game making as well as an understanding of why we play and how we play, including how to create:
- Interactive art and digital games that are enjoyed irrespective of whether there are one, or more, people participating.
- Work that invites both adult and children to play
- Ambient play − subtle invitations to play
- Sensor based environments that invite movement
- Playful interfaces that are easy to figure out but still allow the magical and unexpected to happen
- The differences in creating interaction for public spaces and for cultural spaces
- Why play can bridge the gap between active and passive participation.
