    play/share beyond/in is a pervasive game to be played between the real streets of Buffalo and a fantastic alternative-history city, using mobile phones, live performances, social web media and virtual constructs. What if tomorrow you woke up to a city powered by Tesla’s wireless electricity!? full of hybrid Pierce Arrow cars!? with hover-trains roaring into Central Terminal!? play/share beyond/in invites you to imagine and play in your dream (or nightmare) Buffalo. Game Day One kicks off 10-noon July 31 at Sugar City (19 Wadsworth, Buffalo 14210) as part of the Buffalo Infringement Festival. Game Day 2 is an outreach event for the Beyond/In Western New York Exhibition on October 3. Between the game days, the online network will feature writing contests and a community of players and makers. Visit us to learn how to play or to become a creator of alternate history – http://www.playsharebeyondin.org (more…)

    PLAY/SHARE BUFFALO informational meeting

    play/share buffalo informational meeting
    Thursday, April 1, 2010, 6:00pm – 8:00pm

    @ Burchfield Penney Art Center — 2nd floor conference room
    1300 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo, NY

    play/share buffalo is a pervasive game to be played between the real streets of Buffalo and a fantastic alternative-history city. It is also an outreach project for Alternating Currents, the 2010 Beyond/In Western New York Exhibition. play/share buffalo is looking for people to imagine and design play/shares (missions for the game).

    We’re looking for all kinds of people from a variety of disciplines — students, professionals, artists, engineers, actors, and dreamers — who are interested in designing missions that are Buffalo site-specific. You’re invited to use mobile phones, Twitter, video, puzzles, GPS, humor, theater, computer vision, sound, and audience involvement to help imagine an alternate history of Buffalo, while getting players out into the city to the many “Alternating Currents” locations.

    If you’re interested in learning more about how to design a puzzle for the game, we are holding a general information meeting. We hope you’ll join us to learn more about how you can play with us!

    play/share buffalo is a collaboration of the University at Buffalo’s Intermedia Performance Studio and Beyond/In Western New York 2010.
