Call For Applications: *

Friday/Saturday, 9 and 10 December, 2005
Facilitated by Josephine Starrs and Leon + Anand Vivek Taneja

In this two day workshop Josephine and Leon Cmielewski will demonstrate a
range     \
of works exploring different aspects of game culture, including digital
game     \
modification, game art, machinima, mixed reality games, locative based
gaming     \
and the concept of gameplay.

Ideas of 'gameplay' include interactivity design which may take many forms.
For     \
example decision making, navigating space, the structure of
game content, collaborative or competitive interaction with other players,
and     \
the physical aspects of play.

The workshop will consist of demonstrations, practical exercises, and     \
experiments in the development of locative games. Participants will combine
a     \
walk through Delhi University, the site of the workshop, with Anand, and   
material they gather will form the basis for developing a gaming experience.

[Josephine Starrs and Leon Cmielewski are Australian media artists who
have worked together on several projects which incorporate the language
and structure of digital games. They use play in their work as a
strategy for engaging with the social and political contradictions
inherent in contemporary society.

Anand V. Taneja is a researcher with the Publics and Practices in the
History of the Present project, Sarai-CSDS.]
