Real Utopias

Friday, April 6th, 2012
One-week Interaction Design Workshop at the Arts Academy of Split, Croatia.

Oliver, Pekko and Christina followed the invitation to host a workshop employing game mechanics to develop critical design tools for real utopias.

During the workshop the team developed  a myriad of micro games employing various perspectives of game design.

We collectively mapped utopian ideas, went for a shit hunt, challenged conventions inside a local supermarket, had our perspectives shifted and foci modified. Our brains were thoroughly blend playing with prototypes of our our week-long workshop.

This is BrainBlender, a tool and game in one, to collectively develop unconventional ideas
