Public displays of contest, survival, and stamina have been relocated, from arenas to grocery stores. Combining these past and present sites of global competition, The World Federation of Sphere Detection Sports (WFSDS) shifts our focus from plastic balls to edible spheres using circle recognition technology to generate a virtual sport.

Combining all ball-related sports, WFSDS interface triggers digital players to perform prescribed sphere identification behaviors: kick, catch, swing, hit, and chase over scenes of passing produce, paper products, and alcohol. Watch this season and cheer for your favorite purchase when WFSDS launches its live stream over Prisma’s 24/7 grocery store “Belt Cam” in Helsinki. Who is playing who? Who purchased the melon? Who is winning? No one knows.
