Week 255

This week start­ed on a high note with the open­ing of restau­rant De Klub at Vecht­club XL—the cre­ative work­space in which our Utrecht stu­dio is locat­ed. It is a love­ly space serv­ing good food and drink (includ­ing fine cof­fees) but most impor­tant­ly a great place for serendip­i­tous encoun­ters with oth­er Vecht­club res­i­dents and peo­ple from […]

Week 243

Look­ing at my log for last week it’s clear a lot has been going on; work con­tin­ued on Stand­ing (code­name AJI) and we (main­ly Alper) did some sup­port work on Beesten­bende. In the mean­time we are start­ing up new projects; one is code­named KEGANI, a col­lab­o­ra­tion between us and Sub­alekha who resides in NYC. We […]

Week 162

After last week’s mega-wee­­knotes I’ll keep these short. Not in the least because they effec­tive­ly cov­er two, maybe three days, if I include Sat­ur­day. 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 […]

Week 157

As I write this, I am sat in my sec­ond home The Vil­lage, sip­ping a nice cup of Cos­ta Rica Monte Cadet. Last week around this time, I was get­ting on a train at Berlin Haupt­bahn­hof, hav­ing just spent lit­tle under a week work­ing with Alper and play­ing at Play­pub­lik. Before my depar­ture I squeezed […]

Week 153

The not-much-gets-done-due to-sum­mer trend con­tin­ued last week. I spent some time prepar­ing for my talk on PLAY Pilots in Helsin­ki. This includ­ed a trawl of the project’s blog archives. I was remind­ed of the won­der­ful work done by the stu­dios that par­tic­i­pat­ed as well as the Hub­bub team that worked on the web­site. The whole […]

Pig Chase, a game for pigs and humans

For a while now, I’ve been part of a research project at the Utrecht School of the Arts, called Play­ing with Pigs. Up till now, I’ve referred to it as project Buta on this blog. We’re research­ing the weird rela­tion­ship humans have with domes­ti­cat­ed pigs. You know, pigs that are farmed for meat. The way […]

Things we’re working on (volume 2)

It’s been over half a year since I last talked about the projects we have on deck. I thought I’d do a quick post to give you a sense of what’s going on. We’re in the process of wrap­ping up Maguro. The game — titled Code 4 — is fin­ished and has seen sev­er­al suc­cess­ful […]

Machines for getting lost

It turns out Lone­ly Plan­et is not just in the busi­ness of help­ing you find your way, but also help­ing you get lost. I came across their exper­i­men­tal trav­el series when I was doing some con­cept devel­op­ment recent­ly for a her­itage site. A project I am work­ing on at the HKU’s DPI research group, which […]

Things we’re working on (volume 1)

So I decid­ed to make a lit­tle ‘what’s on deck’ area on the wall behind my desk today. These are all list­ed in my Things and stuff, but I like hav­ing things around me phys­i­cal­ly as a kind of ambi­ent reminder, also to all the oth­er folks in the stu­dio. And now I’m think­ing, why […]
