Urbanimals are a playful pack of origami-like wild beasts who appear in unexpected places across the city, waiting for people to play.
Dolphin likes to leap together, rabbit is very shy, beetle tries to get his job done whilst cheeky kangaroo is up for some skipping. Triggered by people passing or stopping, this magically interactive project uses projectors and sensors and stretched across the whole city.
