Theme day: THU, March 15, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Center for Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Studio 3 | free admission
As a physical being, the human is subject to the abilities of its bodily form as well as to the conditions of the real world. The term “Homo Ludens” describes this human as a being which acquires its abilities primarily through playing games. Games, and especially video games, provide an insight into fictional, transhumanist scenarios. Frequently, the limitations of human abilities are transcended, and the player is put into the role of an avatar which frequently has superhuman powers. However, as a result of this special role as an avatar, a discrepancy arises between the virtual activity of the game character and the physical realities and interactions of the player. On this day of the festival, a space for hybrid interactions will be created through various games and discursive formats and and an attempt to redefine the boundaries between the physical and the digital through alternative forms of physicality in the game is being made.
