About the conference
Interactive Experiences. Playgrounds of Life
Last year’s conference discussed games as a playful reflection on society and examined the possibilities and challenges of implementing socially relevant topics in games. This year we want to shift the focus on us as human beings. We want to speak about animacy, embodiment, empathy and the creation of life in the context of games and playful environments. Which methods enable us to create something that feels alive, something we can emphasize with and which appears to have a vivid body and maybe even a soul? How can games as a highly interactive and playful medium enhance the illusion of life and how can they reflect on us and life itself?
