Purplewood Hill is a spatial interactive story installation, based on Nina Kramer’s novel Purplewood Hill. Through the senses of animals, you are invited to participate in some scenes of the book. The animals are not a part of the story but mere witnesses. Communication & Multimedia Design/Breda - Avans Hogeschool (the Netherlands) students Max Malherbe and Danny van den Munckhof are the technical brains who made it all work. Max van Kollenburg participated as a voice actor.

The story-driven installation Labyrinth has yet to be built. The first weekend of February 2018 around 15 students of both CMD/Breda and Cambridge School of Art will be breaking their brains on the concept in a Hackathon. Keywords will be; Story, Interactive, Spatial, Labyrinth. Based on this concept the installation will be coordinated, build and in both countries and put together in April for the show.
