Week 171

This week start­ed with a two-day work­shop with Jeroen van Mas­trigt of WLYW for a start­up. We played and eval­u­at­ed their game, and sub­se­quent­ly sug­gest­ed a redesign con­sist­ing of the same parts but recom­bined to be more dynam­ic and gen­er­a­tive.

Week 169

Last week start­ed out with a vis­it to the Utrecht Med­ical Cen­tre to dis­cuss a pos­si­ble new project.

Any­way, the project is […]

At the start of last week, I pre­pared for and deliv­ered a num­ber of pre­sen­ta­tions at TFI’s inspi­ra­tion day about games & her­itage. The first was a short case as part of a ses­sion lead by Valen­ti­jn Byvanck, about ways in which games might enrich a hypo­thet­i­cal car muse­um. This ses­sion was aimed at iden­ti­fy­ing […]

To start with the lat­ter: I hand­ed the stu­dents that I have been coach­ing the past half year at the Utrecht School of the Arts their MA degrees. There were short […]

My favorite was film­mak­er Floris Kaayk’s Human Bird­wings project, an elab­o­rate […]

Week 127

It was one of those weeks where Murphy’s Law was bound to rear its ugly head. And it did. Luck­i­ly, we got through it with lit­tle more than a scratch. The stu­dio sched­ule for this week was packed, var­i­ous appoint­ments for dif­fer­ent projects involv­ing a diverse con­fig­u­ra­tion of peo­ple. I also had a speak­ing engage­ment […]

Here’s a selec­tion of the 20 pic­tures I showed at Ignite Ams­ter­dam 4, and the words I man­aged to cram into the 5 min­utes I had avail­able to me. It’s about some of the things that excite me, some of our recent work (most notably PLAY Pilots) and some of our new projects on the […]
