PACCAR Room, Royal Shakespeare Theatre

Why? is a constantly evolving digital sculpture exploring the answer to one question...'Why Shakespeare?'

The sculpture asks audiences to consider Shakespeare's continuing presence and influence in our lives today. By answering this question, a swirling and constantly growing web of words is created entirely from the thoughts, ideas and imagination of its audience.

Text is added to the sculpture by submitting mobile phone text messages or by using keyboards situated in the space.

Entrance to the exhibition is free. The exhibition is open daily from 9am (10am Sundays) until 3 April.

Why? has been developed for the RSC by Squidsoup.
