Press a button to set balls in motion, and watch as they journey through traps and obstacles!
Lucky Balls is an interactive artwork inspired by local lottery culture. It resembles an intricately designed Rube Goldberg machine, which refers to a device that is intentionally built to perform a simple task in an overly complicated way.
Once the artwork is activated, numbered ping pong balls will flood the system and whiz through its tracks. Only four, however, will arrive safely at the end. Lucky Balls aims to immerse viewers in the uncertain journey of the balls, creating a sense of curiosity and anticipation with its sounds and movements.
