Sometimes we need fiction to show who we truly are.
These online workshops bring together artists, designers and researchers from the fields of performance, LARP, game design and media theory. The common inquiry will be the phenomenon of 'bleed', in which the boundaries between fiction and reality, the virtual and physical world dissolve. What do games teach us about the ways we construct worlds collectively? Which rules enable us? What kind of knowledge can the bleeding of a character into the player’s self produce? How can physically and mentally distant worlds be brought together in one unified game space? We want to invite you to take part in a series of playful experiments around collective worldbuilding, digital presence, embodiment and relationality.
The symposium consists of a series of online workshops that start with spring on Saturday, March 20th. They will be running from mid-March to mid-May.
More information will follow as soon as it is available.
All sessions are open for participation but they require registration since spaces are limited.
This symposium is funded by the Inter-Actions department of the LUCA School of Arts.
