Design for play
Play workshop at CounterPlay 2016 /Aarhus, Denmark)
‘I AM A TOY! Contemplating the pleasures of play through collaborative experience’ was an explorative workshop at the Counterplay Festival 2016, in Aarhus, Denmark. This workshop investigated how Play is facilitated through co-operation in scenarios that use games as instigators of collaborative play.
I used Makey-Makey kits to design scenarios for four or five participants, to incentivise them to come together as ‘switches’ in a game, which was then ‘played’ by an individual in collaboration with the other participants/’switches’.
