Week 224

Monday Kars prepped a KAZUNOKO session with some games to play both to serve as an icebreaker and to show the breadth of experience possible in games. For this the classic This Is My Nose and the card game Scopa proved to be a great fit. If you have never played This Is My Nose […]

Week 223

I spent a fair part of last week video editing the results of the workshop we did at the Mozilla Festival in London a couple of weeks ago. Editing demoes into something concise without losing the essence is a very time consuming but fun process. We’ll share the video as soon as we get a […]

Week 220

Last Monday Kars handed over the running engagements to me and tied up some loose ends for ASARI and SABA before jumping on a plane to NYC. He’s there for a week of sight-seeing with his lovely wife before I follow him for work. That left me with a productive week where I integrated the […]

Week 219

Having returned from London over the weekend, I was back in the Utrecht studio and joined by Alper who would be here the whole week. Our normal routine of remote collaboration is pretty effective but it’s fun—and useful—to have the occasional week of working face-to-face. On Monday I tied up some loose ends from our […]

Week 217

Alper started last week putting the final touches on the code-y bits behind a Tumblr we set up to capture a part of the things that pass through Hubbub’s semi-closed studio chat channel. Meanwhile, I did some work on a Processing sketch that would help Simon with the art for the playable infographics we’re making […]

Week 215

Last week was pretty busy. The first few days were taken up by our first intermittent delivery for SANMA. I put together our ideas in a slide deck mainly made up of scans of sketches and photos of whiteboards. A lot of this was aimed to provoke more than to solve. We went through the […]

Week 213

This was one of those in-between weeks so I’ll keep things short. I wrote up and published a project page for Ripple Effect. This was a very interesting and rewarding engagement with Shell, which we hope will see follow-up in the next year. Alper returned from Japan. I updated him of the things that went […]

Week 211

Last week, Alper was away on holiday in Japan, making a courageous effort to drink all the coffee in Japan. His travels continue this week, let’s hope he does not spontaneously combust. I was joined by Simon on Tuesday for a day of work on ASARI. We detailed the design of the toylike interactive infographics […]

Week 206–207

I’m writing up two weeks in one go, for no particular reason other than that I was on a short holiday in Stockholm last week even though it was my turn to do notes. For shame. (STHLM is a recommended destination, I should add.) Alper wrapped up project SAME together with Sebastian. They documented the […]

Week 172

Woah, almost fell off the horse there—it’s Wednesday and I haven’t written up last weeks notes yet. So real quick, let me tell you what happened. Most notably, I finished writing my Gameful World chapter. I then added references and collected images. After one last proofread I sent it to the editors one day short […]
