Playful Machines

I had the chance to be invited to China Academy of Art in Hangzhou to participate in a cultural exchange with the school. “YOUNG to young” is a new program that reunites foreign teachers from different countries and local teachers from China. Together, we paired up and gave different courses during one month to classes of first year students on the theme of “Playshop : A shop for games”.

Playful Machines is the name of the workshop I gave and during which I teach students to build alternative video game controllers : video games that can be played with original tangible interfaces.
