Duck, Duck, Goose is a game played by participants within a circle of illuminated container drums. The game involves changing the coloured lighting on the drums, which respond to touch, sound and ambient light. The drums begin to respond when players are within a few centimetres of them; as the ambient sound level rises, the light-sequences speed up or slow down; very loud sounds such as fireworks trigger a flashing effect.

A single cycle of the game encompasses a series of light-sequences and interactions between the artwork and the participants. Each sequence builds to a finale that shows the audience they are back at the start, ready to do it all again.
