On Sunday 12th August 2012 over 90 people took part in Speed of Reaction @ Roker, Sunderland
What changes faster, you or the Netherworld?
Unlock the gates to inherit the crown of the long lost pirate kingdom.
Play the game!
London based artist Yolanda de los Bueis was chosen by commissioners rednile and funders Sunderland City Council to create a new piece of work inspired by the Factory Night event held at Roker in Spottees Cave and the Watch House Museum.
Yolanda developed the concept for an interactive public event which took place throughout the seafront at Roker. Mobile phones, QR codes, online social networks, films and fast reactions helped teams solve tasks and pushed them to ask their own questions and work creatively. Utilizing unique businesses and locations along the seafront as well as teamwork, technology and creativity, participants explored Roker in a different way and built their own, personal experience from the choices they made. Films inspired pirate stories and local legends created by the artist helped to create a narrative experience throughout the game. This event was for anyone that interested in discovering and exploring digital arts and new meanings of community and space. The winning teams received ‘booty’ kindly donated by Marine Activities Centre Sunderland A limited edition DVD and publication documenting the journey of the amazing teams will be available on http://www.etsy.com/shop/rednileFACTORYOUTLET soon….
