// These last few months I was part of the team developing and producing this concept as sound designer and co-developer. Play!ground is an adaptable concept developed by Het Makershuis. Suitable for all sorts of visual or audiovisual applications using video mapping and track & trace technology. Festivals, organisations, educational purposes, you name it.
