lab online

We’ve been meeting every Friday afternoon for an online lab, where we’ve been discussing our recent work and trying pieces out where some participatory testing is needed. Over this year we’ve been focusing on playfulness as an area of focus, driven in part by some of the group making game pieces, and the general sense of play inherent in much of our work. We’ve listened to and watched pieces by everyone in the group, whether it’s a work in progress or recently completed piece. It’s been great as a format as everyone in the group can join and we’ve found more connections between what we do as a result, despite the (sometimes sizeable) geographical distances.

We’ll publish some outcomes of the Friday labs soon.
