The Concentric Fictions of a Generous History
A virtual workshop with Dhruv Jani
July 11, 2021
Game research and art studio Studio Oleomingus’ Dhruv Jani lead a kaleidoscopic narrative design workshop, centered on the question: can interactive fiction operate as a powerful political tool? This workshop interrogated language, protest, bodies, and empathy in the games space.
The workshop was structured into four exploratory parts:
- Introduction: Beliefs and practice
- Places, sites, and boundaries
- Bodies and identity
- Rituals and labor
Participants will leave with a storytelling prototype that they can develop into an analog or digital game.
