Rainbow Activations is a series of installations that uses colourful tapes and chalk spray to create modular and site-specific playscapes on the ground. Each activation invites children, families, and adults alike to play the mini-games sprayed on each of the yellow markers.
The mini-games encourage the public to play, sing, dance, clap, listen, and observe their way through the installation, searching for hidden objects along the way. Each marker is socially-distanced, with the game’s rules sprayed on the ground next to each marker.
No props or devices are needed to play the games. Simply bring along a playful mindset, pick a starting point, and let your imagination guide you through the branching paths.
Rainbow Activations have been commissioned and installed in the following forms and locations:
- Rainbow Bird Playground – Bunjil Place Plaza
- Rainbow Laneway – Degraves St (as part of Moomba Festival 2021)
- Rainbow Paths – 4 Ballarat St, Brunswick (as part of the Assemble Papers Mind the Gap Party)
This project was created in collaboration with Chad Toprak.
