Week 234

Last week I spent all my time work­ing on the iOS app and web­site for our project AJI. Devel­op­ment has been excru­ci­at­ing­ly slow because we nev­er had a free week to just work on the project. The sim­plic­i­ty of the app we want to make is deceiv­ing even for us. The law of con­ser­va­tion of […]

Week 222

Last week con­clud­ed our vis­it to New York. We’re very hap­py that we man­aged to squeeze in meet­ing lots of friends in those cou­ple of days. We also attend­ed Sleep No More, an immer­sive the­ater project by Punch­drunk which is tout­ed as the best in this field. The expe­ri­ence and set dec­o­ra­tion were impec­ca­ble but […]

Week 212

On Mon­day last week I returned from a fun stay in War­saw. That same day, I attend­ed This hap­pened – Utrecht #17. As almost always, the talks were love­ly hon­est accounts of how things were made. I was par­tic­u­lar­ly tak­en with Mieke Meijer’s sto­ry about her dis­cov­ery of a wood-like mate­r­i­al made of old news­pa­pers. […]

Week 204

In Berlin, Alper spent time prepar­ing for an upcom­ing two-day work­shop on-site for SAME. He’s chew­ing on com­pli­cat­ed stuff togeth­er with Sebas­t­ian, involv­ing on-the-job learn­ing in an unfa­mil­iar cul­ture. We’re look­ing at apply­ing prin­ci­ples of self-deter­mi­­na­­tion the­o­ry and we need to do as much of it with ana­log means. No mean feat. Mean­while, I most­ly […]

Week 201

Lots of logis­tics this week and new projects get­ting start­ed. I was due to be back in the Nether­lands for some meet­ings so I start­ed Mon­day in Utrecht at Hub­bub HQ while Kars went to Info.nl to work on ASARI1. We’re real­ly hap­py to be work­ing togeth­er with our old friends over in Ams­ter­dam and […]

Week 186

As is the nat­ur­al rhythm of things, we’ve been wrap­ping up a num­ber of projects last week, while oth­ers are pick­ing up steam. On the wrap­ping-up front, I worked with Her­man on prepar­ing the slide deck for HIRAME’s final deliv­ery. We put in some sug­ges­tions for a visu­al style, a prop­er game title, a premise—that […]

Week 184

Alper was asked to con­tribute some words on ‘gam­i­fi­ca­tion’ to TNW Mag­a­zine, which appeared the begin­ning of this week. With some amuse­ment we took note of the oth­er con­trib­u­tors to this piece. Let’s just say a diverse range of per­spec­tives is cov­ered. On Mon­day Alper and I worked on adapt­ing Code 4 for play with­in […]

Week 179

This will be some short notes where I had been floored by flu over the week­end and Kars spent most of his time in Utrecht push­ing every­thing along for the con­cept pre­sen­ta­tion of KAIGARA. Since this week you can also reg­is­ter for updates on the Game­ful World, the book Kars is con­tribut­ing to. In between […]

Join us in Utrecht for FRIDAYS AT 7

So it’s time for a new thing, some­thing that will pos­si­bly turn into a irreg­u­lar­ly recur­ring get-togeth­­er for friends of the stu­dio. We’ve bor­rowed the name—FRIDAYS AT 7—from the drinks Urban­scale orga­nizes in NYC. With per­mis­sion, of course, as can be told from this exchange on Twit­ter: @kaeru Do what thou wilt shall be the […]
