‘digital confetti’ by rockwell group lab is an interactive event installation with a weather balloon, projection and maracas. the installation builds off traditional interactive party elements such as noisemakers, confetti, balloons and fireworks, which results in a centerpiece allowing for individual and group interaction. a twelve-foot diameter weather balloon floats in the air, with projectors surrounding the balloon display, while small colorful shapes of digital confetti swim around on the ball’s surface. eight different maracas are used to project various graphics on the sphere. shaking each one of the noisemakers, results in a different effect, allowing you to move the confetti, causing a spectacle of light, color and sound. one maraca displays text on the surface of the balloon. the participants shaking the noisemakers can cause letters to vibrate, flip and transform into a sequence of words related to design. words are shown in black and then illuminated by the explosions of confetti occurring in the background. the maracas all generate different musical notes, creating an orchestrated sound when shaken together.

david rockwell’s interest in spectacle and temporary installations, combined with digital media,

encourage exploration of enhanced and memorable experiences.
