During the last year of our Multimedia - Art & Technology courses at the Erasmus University College Brussels, we received a task from our teacher Pieter Steyaert to build a digital escape room, together as one big team. This was in the context of his 'New Media Devices' courses, where we got familiar with all kinds of hardware, ranging from oculus rift to raspberry pi, and leap motion. We also experimented with VJ / video mapping software, live coding techniques, and AI-driven art pieces.

Here's a behind the scenes of our attempt to build that digital escape room with the full class of 11 students, at the former ArteNova coworking space, in Mechelen. The installation was to be called Rhytko.
