Last winter there was the set up of a shadow play projection on a huge Shibuya wall next to a parking lot called Big Shadow.
When people moved by, their silhouettes were enhanced and deformed, and eventually the game’s creatures would enlarge on the wall and play tricks on the crowd.
But despite the temporary excitement, people lose interest pretty quickly, especially in a city like Tokyo.

Last Christmas, Omotesando Street in Aoyama was spiced up by a little bit of interactive play to these sixty objects, each of them being six meters high: the so called Akarium Project.
Anyone could call the collumns by mobile or over the internet and her or his voice would dynamically control the pulsation of the lights.
But is it Tokyo with it's high buildings, screens and neon signs, the right place for something like Akarium? However, the usage of cellphones it might improve the interest for interaction.
