For Mindshare LA (A Social Event for Enlightened Debauchery), we created an experimental installation for the visitors to socialize and interact with. Inspired by the traditional “Broken Telephone” game – Anomaly highlights human error and unexpected outcomes.
The game play was simple:
-Each player should enter the booth one at a time.
-The first player starts off by writing a phrase for the next player to act out.
-The second player acts out the phrase.
-The third player will try to guess what the previous player was doing.
-This gets repeated until a set of six is competed.
-After six players, the anomalies would be revealed.
The anomalies were revealed on a tessellated sculpture placed behind the bar – a visual representation of error. Patched together side by side into a collaborative performance, the chain of videos formed conversations around who caused the anomaly.
