When visitors jump on each colourful block in turn, a series of images appear, depicting the story of a plastic bottle that wasn’t recycled. Rayuela - Vivid Light 2019

Rayuela is a fun, interactive and educational game where you discover hidden worlds to learn about the importance of recycling. This is a place that sparks the imagination as visitors follow the journey of a plastic bottle, tracking it from the supermarket shelf to being discarded and through the waste cycle to an almost inevitable end in the ocean. 

Rayuela draws inspiration from the universal children’s game – hopscotch – creating a playground appropriate for all ages. Eleven motion-sensitive pressure pads are arranged in the classic configuration. Below the surface of each square, there is a hidden world revealed at each step. To expand on the experience, Rayuela is accompanied by an interactive mobile website, making this story approachable and easily accessible to everyone. Using simple to understand examples and accompanying visuals, the digital interface of Rayuela helps expand our knowledge on why plastic is a problem and what we can all do to alleviate pollution. 

The installation uses pieces of plastic collected from Sydney’s beaches, reminding us that plastic pollution is everywhere. Rayuela hopes to inform a better understanding that the road to a healthier environment needs to start somewhere. Plastic is a global problem, and it’s one we all can do something about.
