Organic City and Cruel Game

Dois projetos fazendo a interface entre as tecnologias da mobilidade e o espao urbano.

O promeiro o The Organic City , uma construo de histrias sobre a cidade de Oakland, na Califrnia, contada pelas pessoas atravs de dispositivos mveis e mapeamentos:

“The Organic City is a community storytelling project focused on the downtown Oakland areas surrounding Lake Merritt. We encourage you to find and tell stories about local places through this website. These stories form the basis for mobile media that can be experienced while walking around the city.”

O outro um game para celular em relao direta com o espao urbano, o Cruel Game cujo objetivo caar o outro e usando como armas “a random act of kindness”. Um jogo de assassinato benevolente como dizem os organizadores

“At the beginning of the game, you and a partner-in-crime are assigned a secret weapon. To onlookers, it will seem like a random act of kindness. But to a select group of other players, the seemingly benevolent gesture is a deadly maneuver that will bring them to their knees. Some players will be slain by a serenade. Others will be killed by a compliment. You and your partner might be taken down by an innocent group cheer.”
