For those of you wondering what I've been working on for the last 9 months, here it is:

The exhibition features games designed by

The CAID garden hosts a mini-golf course curated by Graem Whyte. Holes and putters designed by Matt Blake, Chris Benfield, Denise Fanning, Matt Hanna,
Scott Hocking, Chido Johnson, Nolan Simon, Clint Snider, and Justin Temple.

Opening night events include interactive performance games with "people as pieces" conducted by Professor Goodman. A theatrical performance, "Play: Games are the Enemies of Beauty, Truth and Sleep" by Donald Barthelme, directed by Maureen Biermann. Also a late night performance by Neil Hennessy as Ms. Pac-Mondrian.

There's a lot more to this show, but I've already taken enough space! Come check it out.
