The OTHER Market game and The Loot Garden art market

Check out The OTHER Market this Saturday April 22nd. The OTHER Market is a mini-larp locative media treasure hunt exquisite corpse gamey experience –  designed over many months by the Liveness Research group at TAG. 

The OTHER Market is part of a SSHRC project looking at ways to design what are now often called immersive experiences, so that they are truly participatory. This results in a structure which does not rely on a lot of actors (or other trained staff) to run a production and makes these kinds of projects more sustainable for small teams and companies with modest budgets.

Thematically, The OTHER Market explores meaning-making around objects and collections of objects. What can objects mean when they are untethered from consumption and/or status?

Sign up for the game.

The game takes place within a real art market called The Loot Garden. This art market has been especially organized to complement the game but you can come to the market without participating in the game.
