Incredible Witness: Experiment #1– Direction Game

November 15, 2015 Sunview Luncheonette and McGorlick Park Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NYC

Based on: Clarinda Mac Low, direction challenged. Players are given a deck of 30 cards with directions for proceeding from one end of McGorlick Park to another. The directions create a series of physical or psychological barriers and detours, bringing the players into the state of someone who has difficulty finding their way through space. Before beginning, the players are instructed to imagine themselves in a situation where they cannot be late (a child needs pick-up, a second date, a job obligation) before playing the game, to add an extra layer of urgency.
