Urban Gaming

IMG_3319_touch_phoneThe Urban Gaming project engages with Active Ingredient, an artistic collective, in developing a pilot urban game for Woolwich, commissioned by Stream Arts. The game ‘Exploding Places’ aims to build a new experience for the Woolwich area, providing a perspective of Woolwich which is future looking and responds to the lack of cohesion or positive images reflected in the communities who live and work in Woolwich.

IMG_3368_big_screenThe project aims to use mobile urban gaming to explore the technical issues and opportunities in moving from fixed in-house service/ hosting to the cloud-based service provision envisioned by Horizon.

The project also presents an opportunity to explore with community groups and members of the public, social and cultural perspectives on ubiquitous computing.
