play/share buffalo informational meeting
Thursday, April 1, 2010, 6:00pm – 8:00pm
@ Burchfield Penney Art Center — 2nd floor conference room
1300 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo, NY
play/share buffalo is a pervasive game to be played between the real streets of Buffalo and a fantastic alternative-history city. It is also an outreach project for Alternating Currents, the 2010 Beyond/In Western New York Exhibition. play/share buffalo is looking for people to imagine and design play/shares (missions for the game).
We’re looking for all kinds of people from a variety of disciplines — students, professionals, artists, engineers, actors, and dreamers — who are interested in designing missions that are Buffalo site-specific. You’re invited to use mobile phones, Twitter, video, puzzles, GPS, humor, theater, computer vision, sound, and audience involvement to help imagine an alternate history of Buffalo, while getting players out into the city to the many “Alternating Currents” locations.
If you’re interested in learning more about how to design a puzzle for the game, we are holding a general information meeting. We hope you’ll join us to learn more about how you can play with us!
play/share buffalo is a collaboration of the University at Buffalo’s Intermedia Performance Studio and Beyond/In Western New York 2010.
