Walk of Fame at four exhibitions simultaneously!

The Walk of Fame, Wiggle the Eye, and other PlayFit projects have been exhibited at four exhibitions simultaneously this week! TU/e Experience Day, Dutch Technology’s Week Fontys Work in Progress, Night of the Nerds and the Conference for Education and Social Media (NCOSM). Thousands of visitors and players, and a lot of ‘hidden activity’ by convincing people to play in a social way.

Walk of Fame (and me) live at Dutch television

The Walk of Fame, PlayFit and myself were featured in Z@pplive, a teenager media program on Dutch national television. In the show, teenagers could explore our interactive installations, and I explained a bit about PlayFit.

Walk of Fame for Serious Request

Our installation Walk of Fame was part of the ‘Playground, Serious Gaming for Serious Request’ event. This playground with interactive games was one of the activities for Serious Request, a large charity event in the Netherlands. Visitors could play with the Walk of Fame and other games, in return for a donation for the Red Cross.

Wiggle the Eye at Polish Design Festival

Our installation Wiggle the Eye was exhibited at the Lodz Design Festival in Poland for 10 days. Part of an exhibition about ‘Deep Need’, Wiggle the Eye created quite some playful activity among the thousands of visitors.

At the last day of the festival, I gave a workshop about ‘Playful persuasion in public spaces’.


Press campaign about Playful Interactions

Recently, I’ve been featured in the TU/e press campaign, about playful persuasion, playfit, and my vision. Photos, a commercial on national television, and a 1-minute video about my work. Clearly a commercial, but still - a nice overview of my work!
