We’ve been presenting our work to people studying projects similar to ours. These opportunities to analyze and compare our work do us good because they help us keep our boundaries open.
A week ago, Fabio gave a presentation at a symposium called Playing the City, an international event to explore intersections between the study of urban practices and the creation of new, ludic forms of participating in the life of a city. Our appointment was hosted by the Play 2010 Game Festival in Modena, a perfect setting to talk about WHAIWHAI, about the motivation to create a game where players interact with cities. Here ’s Fabio’s talk, which came after Mary Flanagan’s first hour session.
And next Monday, I (GiuliaP) will meet students majoring in multimedia publishing in the Department of Humanities of the University of Rome - La Sapienza. There, I will have a chance to discuss WHAIWHAI as an innovative publishing product. Without a doubt, there’ll be some excellent points to reflect on for those studying new publishing foand media formats.
