Time’s Up are one of Europe’s most innovative arts groups and their Sensory Circus has become a star-attraction at festivals across the globe.
The Sensory Circus is a series of rooms and interactive environments in which you animate the space yourself in conjunction with games technology. Mood Swings trigger projections and sound, playing with forms of machine perception and reaction. Sonic Pong embeds you in a lifesized world of the computer game Pong - your body mass controls the paddles as you manipulate samples of old 8bit games. Beatcycles puts you in whirling control of an organically growing beatbox.
Time's Up is a laboratory of artist and scientists based in Linz, Austria. Working between the areas of the arts, sciences, technology and entertainment, Time's Up develop extensive interactive environments, present workshops, undertake research and generally investigate the interplay of the public body with the virtual and digital. Past large-scale projects include the Hyperfitness Studio series, the BodySPIN environments and their new series, the Sensory Circus premiered at Ars Electronica in 2004. Time's Up has presented work in countries including Austria, Australia, Hong Kong, France, Germany, Slovenia and Vietnam.
