PIN HOLE - live out of the box

Remember the last time you felt completely surprised opening a box? Was it a Christmas gift or an engagement ring? Whatever it was we can guarantee that nothing compares with the fun PIN HOLE brings you.

Have you ever been to Linz Austria? If you haven’t had the chance to see its Main Square, the Danube, and the Ars Electronica Center …don’t panic! Imagine now that you don’t need to fly all the way there to see all of it. Simply walk by the PIN HOLE  and—voila!—here they are, the people, the place, all of it. Everything is possible; a smile, a joke, a gesture, a blink, or even a dance, and nothing is planned.

Then how do people in Linz see you? Exactly! There is another PIN HOLE  box installed in the Base Camp of 80+1 on the Main Square of Linz where your every move is shown and observed. You may think that such a project must be extremely complicated, right? In fact it’s not complicated at all. Simply a laptop and internet connection can already make it happen!

Now the Pin Hole cases have started their journey to various destinations. You may just run into one by accident, who knows! Check out our daily schedule for a PIN HOLE encounter with nothing but surprises!

    “Hello! I am in Taipei, Taiwan!”
    I met two lovely girls and had small conversation with a friendly lady from Linz. It’s nice to have chance to say “hello” to people on the other side of the world.
