Urban Games: Real Action in the World of Reality

EYEBEAM is presenting an open forum talk regarding urban games. EYEBEAM is holding the talk in conjunction with Jenny Marketou's exhibition Work in Progress so as to "understand live action game play; to analyze the role of locative media in the live action urban game industry and how it can be used in a critical, radical and entertaining way to create games which offer a new kind of social imagination; how to use locative media to express an index of spatial relationships and create physical net works; to discuss the future of live action urban games that engage a general public of gamers; to provide an opportunity to discuss women’s involvement in the urban game industry and play; to present and discuss some of the latest live action urban game research and projects."

Other panel contributors are: Jonah Brucker- Cohen - Katherine Moriwaki (Networking and Telecommunications Research Group (NTRG) at Trinity College Dublin), McKenzie Wark (New School University), Amos Bloomberg (PAC-MAN), Christina Ray (Glowlab), Jenny Marketou, artist in residence at Eyebeam, AIR (Cooper Union School of Art) and Katie Salen (Director Graduate Design and Technology Program at Parsons School of Design).

The discussion will take place on February 17, 2005 at Eyebeam, 21st Street from 6:30 pm to 8: 30 pm. The event is free to the public.
