‘Play Array’ is a real world game. Its takes gaming out of our phones and computers, and places it in a public venue for people to enjoy, and in turn create conversations and connections. The focus is not so much on the game, but the aspect of play, participation, and connections. The idea is to have strangers on a street interacting with each other by playing the classic video game ‘Pong’ on an originally unused storefront. The project is also an attempt to activate empty storefronts, and to create more fun, vibrant and livable cities. It is installed at the New York University, Center for Urban Science and Progress Pop Up space for a few weeks to create awareness and interest around the theme of urban science, citizen science, urban innovation, technology and art.
