'Arty Splash' is a specially designed energy drink for 'This could be Rotterdam or anywhere', an art festival presenting exhibitions and events in Charlois, Rotterdam South.

For the group exhibition 'Playground' 36 energy drinks (12 cans of each design) stood on a cube mounted on the wall. In addition a black strip-shaped poster with the slogan 'Double your energy, triple your creativity! For Free!' was mounted on the wall.

The cube showed a black QR-Code on its white surfaces. The same code was also printed on each beverage can and specially designed display boxes. By scanning the code with a mobile phone people could reach a website to get supplementary information and to watch digital animations showing the different designs (see below for further details).

The energy drinks were offered at different locations and events of the festival and the visitors were invited to take one or several drinks for free. Once the 36 drinks in the exhibition space were gone they were not replaced. After that the cube and the slogan on the wall were left without any drinks.
