Goblin Market

Added by Absurdum November 2nd 2008 @ 4:51 am

Set up a stall (or set of stalls) selling unusual objects. When asked what they cost, sell them at typical goblin market prices (for example - the memory of a spring day, a secret, the buyer's truename, a lock of the buyer's hair, their currently unborn firstborn child, a canary).

Costumes are optional, but more likely to make it more interesting for all concerned.

Museum Of Artifacts From The Temporal Desert Of Disinterest

Added by Burn Unit November 9th 2008 @ 1:23 am

A newspaper from this morning is useful. A newspaper from 100 years
ago is interesting. A newspaper from ten years ago is garbage.

Your task, fearless Chrononaut, is to explore this phenomenon by curating an exhibition of material drawn from the nameless region that lies between utility and artifact. Include a detailed analysis that contextualizes each piece in relation to the other works and the culture and period in which they are embedded.

One piece of advice: be wary of nostalgia and eschew kitsch, for they will only lead you astray.

The Way I Remember It...

Added by artmouse December 3rd 2008 @ 2:17 pm

Recreate one of your early childhood memories from the point of view of another person from that memory. There is, of course, a difference between talking about something you remember and recreating a memory. That said, how you recreate yours is up to you.

B.A.C.K.R.O.N.Y.M.S.

Added April 22nd 2009 @ 8:04 pm

People love to make up acronymical explanations for words that aren't acronyms; for example, "cop" does not stand for Constable On Patrol.

This task asks you to make this creative mistake deliberately, to help the public understand what words truly mean. Find a word written somewhere out in the world, and publicly post what its letters stand for.

(Un)necessary Forgery

Added by praximity July 16th 2009 @ 9:17 am

Apply manual forgery techniques to a work of art that is easily reproduced.

For example, forge a piece of music, or a poem. Fight digital reproduction by making distinct but exact(-ish) copies. Is your forgery good enough to fool anyone?

I Think I'll Take The Devil I Have Only Vague Inklings About.

Added by teucer April 2nd 2010 @ 10:08 pm

Collaborate with a consenting SF0 player. For a week, do not communicate with them, and do something that impacts them in some way. Do not tell them in advance what you plan to spend the week doing.

After a week, the tables turn, and they do something in return.

Paleodiet

Added by Loki February 27th 2011 @ 10:04 pm

The diet of the hunter-gatherer differs from that of the typical SF0 player not only in composition, but also in the degree to which it is predictable. Explore the subjective effects of a scarce and unreliable food supply on the modern, western human by modifying your own food selection mechanism to include elements with random or uncertain outcomes; to wit, play a game to decide what and how much you eat.

Seat Creation And Insertion Phase 1: Schematics

Added January 29th 2006 @ 8:41 pm

"The quality of any urban environment can be measured by whether there are convenient, comfortable places for pedestrians to sit."

Design a way to implement new, comfortable forms of seating in the city, or to convert an uncomfortable seating arrangement into a comfortable one.
You may start from scratch, or use already-existing seating schematics (like "The Bench") as a base for your work. In this phase you do not need to implement your system, only design it and begin to determine how it could be implemented.

Ariadne's Thread

Added by Ben Whitehouse August 30th 2008 @ 3:39 pm

1) Contact Ariadne. (Ariadne can be a friend, a friend of a friend, or an Ariadne chosen at random from a phone directory.)
2) Ask her for a list of her ten favorite places in the city (or as many as she is willing to share).

3) Plot these places on a map and draw a line between them.

4) Follow Ariadne's thread. Watch out for the Minotaur on your journey.

Eye Of Horus

Added by Burn Unit August 16th 2010 @ 4:51 am

The body of Osirus has been hidden in the environs of the city by Set and his minions. In each part of the game you will recover a part: the head, the heart, the hands and the feet.

YOU are limited, your flesh and your body. But your camera reaches across space and freezes time, it is your wedjat, the eye of action.

Your camera is the eye that ignores the restrictions put upon you and slips past artificial barriers, snares light and holds it in place, creates a relationship between viewer and viewed, and unlocks the spirit of the subject and the photographer.

Eye of Horus was played as a street game in Minneapolis on August 15, 2010. Players are urged to document their experiences here.

Viaje Al Final De La Noche: Ciudad De México

Viaje al Final de la Noche: Ciudad de México -*- MX02102010

[ La ciudad se esparce ante tí. Te apresuras de un punto a otro, iluminado por el lento estroboscopio de autobuses fluorescentes y calles oscuras. Enfrentas situaciones para conseguir la firma de un extraño. Huyes de perseguidores desconocidos, respirando apresuradamente, admirando el paisaje y la multitud de mundos escondidos dentro. Por una noche, olvida tus relaciones, tu trabajo y tus actividades de ocio, y todos tus motivos acostumbrados para el movimiento y la acción, y déjate arrastrar por la emoción de la cacería y los encuentros que ocurran ahí. ]

Describa su experiencia.

SurviveDC 2011

Added by Spidere May 9th 2011 @ 7:48 pm

The city spreads out before you. Rushing from point to point, lit by the slow strobe of fluorescent buses and dark streets. Stumbling into situations for a stranger's signature. Fleeing unknown pursuers, breathing hard, admiring the landscape and the multitude of worlds hidden in it.

For one night, drop your relations, your work and leisure activities, and all your usual motives for movement and action, and let yourself be drawn by the attractions of the chase and the encounters you find there.



If you participated in SurviveDC in any way (as a player, chaser, or volunteer), please post your story here. Tell us your story of fear, lust, pain, speed, alienation, loneliness, hate, and desire.
