Sculpt the future in FutureKave, a participatory 3D game that puts you on the moon with the power to bring colorful life to a desolate world.

What happens when you walk into a room that’s providing both a physical and virtual experience?

FutureKave is an interactive 3D game experience that transports you to a realm of social play and possibility. Your body movement paints and sculpts the spinning moon beneath your avatar. What begins as a desolate moonscape is brought to colorful life as you move and interact with other players, creating a unique collaborative planet sculpture throughout the night.

Players can participate with their bodies in front of large projections at two locations: Inside MCAD, and in Target Park at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Players at both locations are brought together as avatars in the same shared virtual moonscape. Each set of players has powers to shape the terrain and each other.
