A series of specially made 20 minute performance-talks as VideoBrainsresident speaker. From June 2015 to November 2015 I did a monthly series of talks on the psychogeography of games.

This project was made possible/less financially damaging by the generous support of my Patreon Backers. You too can help support this kind of work by donating upwards of $1 a month on Patreon, where there’s lots of behind the scenes stuff you’ll get from me, plus a zine each year, and other extras.

Psychogeography means thinking about how our environments make us feel; how they affect us and what we do. I’m interested in how where we come from affects what we make – so what I did was spend time with great people who make games walking in a place that is where they live, work, or is otherwise important to them. Each month I made a new performance/talk/thing in response to that experience. Each month’s thing responded entirely to the experience of walking with game designers.

I worked/walked with with:
