Exercise the Senses

Can you recognize your own friends or family when they hug you, but you can not see neither hear them? It may sound awkward, but most people can’t!

We are researching the implications of non verbal communication in social interactions. The language of the body, the gestures, or the touch, are sources of self-awareness as well as context awareness that we hardly understand.

26 Characters to be Played with unlimited combinations of rules. Different rule sets for different purposes or situations: ice breaker, tone setter… in class, at the start of a project, with friends… The cards can be used for teaming up as well as for educational purposes.

The Art in the Illustrations

In the DNA of the cards rests the love for classic paintings and engravings. Each card is a collage of at least three classical artworks with a special homage to Cranach the Elder and Albrecht Dürer. This is our copyleft attempt of re-sampling as well as exalting the works of these great masters. While designing we had a marvelous time looking up old paintings and figuring out which elements and parts to adapt. It provoked us to take closer looks at the little corners behind the painting’s main subjects. We were rewarded with the most beautiful and weirdest details like weary gnomes on leashes held by nymphs. Some elements proved useful or inspirational for this game, most were just plain impressive.

En l’àmbit escolar és apropiat per estimular el coneixement de l’altre a través de les sensacions, sense judicis de valor. Pot ser una eina pel desenvolupament sensorial i comunicatiu i pot ser usat per al debat sobre temes tan diversos com els rols de gènere, la comunicació, la invidència  o la sensualitat. Tant en les il·lustracions com en l’assignació de rols s’ha buscat trencar estereotips i estimular les capacitats expressives de la persona.
