TenaCITY

Game Design, Research

I researched, designed, and developed TenaCITY while I was a fellow at KHOJ International Artist Association in 2013 & 2014.

TenaCITY was intended as a way to create actionable dialogue about how we engage in everyday micro-aggressions and normalized bigotry towards perceived minorities in urban environments.

TenaCITY is a gallery game about stereotypes and language funded by KHOJ.

I developed an interactive palimpsest maker that was projected around the gallery with player’s thoughts after playing the game.

Game Rules

Game Rules

Gallery visitors played this game over several hours. The rules were printed and presented and the game moved along organically.
