Artist:
George Buchanan (Australia)

SpaceBalls is an intergalactic planetary spin on the old favourite, marble run. Turn the wheels and push the buttons to wind the balls up into position, then watch as they roll and tumble their way through outer space! SpaceBalls is a fun and interactive installation for all ages and abilities, and has been produced according to the principles of ‘universal design’.

SpaceBalls is equally thrilling whether you’re playing the interactive game or just observing the sound and light show if that’s more your speed.

Pink Cactus collaborated with young artists with disabilities, incorporating their artworks into the solar system design of SpaceBalls.
