w00t Copenhagen Play Festival

Playful Revolution had a great time at the w00t Copenhagen Play Festival 2015. Another gathering of like-minded designers and visitors of this emerging scene I like to call ‘Playful Arts’; Interactive Intallations, Urban Games, Arcade Games, Folk Games anything goes, really.
This year the contribution by Playful Revolution was a Physical Game Design Seminar, commisioned by Roskilde University. The assignment was simple but clear: ‘Design a Physical Game that will be played during a musical concert’. Important Design Parameters were interaction artist vs. audience and interaction audience vs. audience.
The course was held over a period of 2 months, with weekly skype sessions for the concept phase, and a 3 day intensive seminar on location with playtesting and rehearsals.
We had loads of fun and the frantic, rave-like party game that was produced made me proud to be part of this emerging scene.

Playful Revolution goes W00t Copenhagen Play Festival!

w00t logoThe Playful Revolution goes Copenhagen!
w00t Festival is all about physical play. This year the Revolution will contribute to the festival hosting a Physical Crowd Game design course, at Roskilde University. The interdisciplinairy student group has been designing a crowd game for a musical concert setting.

A group of students from Roskilde University have in cooperation with a game designer Sylvan Steenhuis developed a new concept combining music and game with focus on interaction. The concert will be an interactive experience, providing the audience to be an active, co-creative part of the concert. The combination of music and game will open up to a common experience for the audience and artist, and in this way try to further develop the interaction between the two art forms.

Duurzaam Kempen Soundbite

Here’s a soundbite from my lecture at ‘Duurzaam Kempen’ Geel, Belgium
The event was about sustainable transition community’s and re-envisioning the use of public space; that’s where I came in…
