Fiction Façade, created by Urban Visuals (Konstantinos Mavromichalis and Nathan Whitford), is a digital animation artwork activated by interaction.

It generates sequences similar to arcade games like pinball. Installed at the Surrey UrbanScreen, abstract geometric shapes and patterns responded to the architectural features of the west wall of the Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre.

They bounced off window perimeters, explored surface areas of the building skin, and appeared to get stuck where there is no space available to let them out. Fiction Façade also came with a soundscape informed by 8-bit video games. Visitors to the UrbanScreen could tune into FM 89.9 on an MP3 player or car stereo to hear it.
