KIKK-Party experience report

The interesting thing about the evening was, that people could return to sparky and show other people how it works. We haven't had any experiments before that evening were people could interact with sparky over a long time and had the opportunity to come back and interact with him again.
In the first part of the evening we had to explain what you can do with sparky, but after a while people returned and tried him again and showed it to friends. If we let him in the lobby alone for some time and nobody interacted with him, he got sad and collapsed as usual, but then people walking or standing by were feeling sorry for him. Those who have already experienced sparky or just saw what you can do to make him happy again then interacted with him and moved him around. So in the end it was self-running.
It was also interesting to see that people who had comsumed alcohol came and blew into his sensitive nose to make him sad, but then quickly felt sorry and didn't want to have him sad so exercised him again. There were only two people during the night who left him sad behind, nobody else wanted to see him sad. Certainly a high amount of people felt responsible for him.
