Art and Design: Games and Playable MediaARTG 134 Spectacular Play: Performance, Ritual, and Making a Scene IRL

What do immersion and interactivity look like outside of virtual worlds? How can we activate social dynamics and public space for the purpose of play? How might we evoke feelings of purpose, or even magic, for players and spectators alike? Students will study and create immersive experiences designed to play out in real life. Drawing inspiration from performance studies, activism, art history, and more, we will transform the everyday into the extraordinary.


Two of the following courses: ARTG 80G, ARTG 80H, ARTG 80I.
