This was a collaboration between myself, Nikki Pugh and Stuart Tait.
The Ludogeographers explored how games develop creativity: play frees you from the restrictions of everyday life, and allows you to access new ways of thinking.
We developed projects where the rules and content emerge from game-play, since this allows a community to grow organically and move in unexpected directions.
Play highlights the virtual structures around us and re-frames them: allowing us to temporarily reconfigure the city, rather than resigning ourselves to always be shaped by it.
