Playing the Graveyard

Playing the Graveyard was an urban game design workshop held in cooperation with Art and Technology Aalborg University April 2014 @ Aalborg, Denmark.

Using games as interventions the workshop explored how the Aalborg Almen Kirkegård Cemetery can be integrated in adjacent urban processes. This constituted a methodological experiment exploring the use of team based urban game design in artistic research.

Workshop documentation can be found here. Connected to the workshop Viktor Bedö gave an Obel lecture about “How Game Design Can Teach Us About Urban Scale“.
