Video of my talk Breaking the magic circle during the Ludic City lecture in Brussels 2013.
“During this talk I will be discussing public space as a playful environment, giving examples of Alternate Reality Gaming and Gamification. Through framing of observations, I will be questioning what this redefining of a public area does to the people occupying it. Busy street corners, parks and public phones have all had a temporary new usage within a game. We will be looking at the different modes of interaction that originate within such public play and the several types of participation that can occur.”
