Experiments in Play

In 2019 I co-produced Experiments in Play, an exhibition showcasing inventive and experimental playful experiences that sit at the intersection of games, interactive design, and creative technology.

The show ran for three days, between 19-21 September, and included an opening night gala with a panel discussion on narrative in games.

The showcase pushed the bounds of what games can offer as a medium, experimenting with the vast capabilities of play. The breadth of work on show included physical performances and workshops, interactive literature, VR & AR experiences, alternative controllers, and playable works of art, as well as more traditional video game and board game experiences.

I was responsible for leading the setup at the venue, completing appropriate health and safety checks, liaising with participants about their work, and co-ordinating the marketing of the show.
