Reinvisioning Traditional Games - Brazil

Studio Description

Andrew Todd Marcus

In this studio, we worked with gamemaker and technology company Tencent to re-envision traditional Brazilian games to better understand their place in the modern world. Working with UNESCO, Tencent has collected traditional and folk games that were developed throughout human history and digitized their findings for use in the public domain. We will study what traditional games imply about the ancient world-view, and understand how ancient civilizations utilized games as a tool for education and knowledge conveyance. Ultimately, we will develop projects that revive ancient wisdom by transforming and spreading the traditional of Brazilian games among the younger generation with the help of latest technology and modern-era pedagogy.
