Lieven’s game ‘Smoke Pong’’ creates a private party for smokers. He developed a version of the old-school game Pong were the paddles can only be controlled by a burning cigarette. The only way to join the fun is to pick up a cigarette yourself.

Lieven van Velthoven studied Media Technology in Leiden and develops games and generative visuals. Everything is either live or interacts.

Besides the work Smoke Pong Lieven will VJ with his self-made software during NIGHT. The visuals are made out of millions of particles created with software written in C# with DirectX + HLSL shaders, and is controlled using an Xbox 360 or MIDI controllers.
