New projects

“OccuPlay” is a new collaboration with the Design Studio for Social Intervention. Inspired by ds4si’s Big Urban Games project as well as the Occupy movement, the idea is to create “temporary autonomous zones” in which we take over space and flip it for play. What places in the city are “zoned for play” and in what places is play tacitly or explicitly discouraged? What if we mucked around with those binary divisions and occupied spaces with actions and people we consider “playful?” How do we define play in these zones?

Stay tuned for updates. Want to get involved? Send me a note here.
