The Gardens Between #Gameplay #Trailer – #memory #friendship #game [#geekgirl]

The Gardens Between is a single player adventure puzzle game about memories, friendship and time.

Best friends Arina and Frendt fall into a series of vibrant, dreamlike island gardens peppered with everyday objects from their childhood. Together they embark on an emotional journey that examines the significance of their friendship: the memories they’ve built, what must be let go, and what should never be left behind. Lost in a mysterious realm where cause and effect are malleable, the friends find that time flows in all directions. Manipulate time to solve puzzles and reach the apex of each isle. Follow the duo as they unpack and explore their significant moments spent together, lighting up constellations and illuminating threads of a bittersweet narrative.

Play with this #Melbourne #Art #Tram using #AR #playablecities #video [#geekgirl]

A short documentary about Troy Innocent, a 2018 Melbourne Art Trams artist.

This artwork makes one of Melbourne’s trams playable—literally. While the geometric imagery is an artwork in itself, an augmented reality app reveals another layer of animation and sound when the passing tram is viewed from the camera of a phone. This plays a musical score generated by the app as it detects fragments of the design.

Playable cities connect people and place, appropriating urban environments and infrastructure—such as the Melbourne tram—through playful takeover, changing and renegotiating its meaning. Playful citizens see their town or city in a new way, feeling a new sense of connection, and sensing new ways it could be.

Also don’t forget to download the app – Accelerando (Ludea) to play with TRAM 96 (ID 5106 ) as part of Melbourne International Games Week (@GamesWeekMelbs ). 20-28 Oct 2018

@SueAustinArtist #Underwater #Wheelchair – the director’s cut #video [#geekgirl]

Acclaimed British multimedia, performance and installation artist Sue Austin will present the South Hemisphere premiere of her underwater, live art event ‘Creating the Spectacle!’ exclusively as part of the Adelaide Film Festival (ADL) Film Fest in October, 2018 …

Audiences are invited to apply to attend the performance with demonstrated diving certificates or be willing to be trained for the event. Audience applications close Oct 9, 2018.

Sue Austin, from Devon, UK, is a disabled artist who aims to change perceptions of the wheelchair. For her, after spending years bedbound, the wheelchair gives her freedom. She ‘flies’ a NHS wheelchair underwater. In this film she adapted the chair with battery powered propellers and large perspex aerofoils to control turns. She is in the process of applying for a patent and hopes that one day these chairs will be made available at diving centres across the world.

This film was shot and edited by Norman Lomax of Moving Content, UK
