The act of design is a game of trust and balance. As players in this game, we are trusted (and trust others) to make decisions and participate in a way that achieves a common goal. We ideate and iterate to explore connections and relationships that will lead to a designed outcome, thus winning the “game.” ARTIFACT will challenge Block Party participants to connect, apply, and balance objects to achieve a sculptural design that utilizes all game pieces. Some pieces will be obvious in the way in which they engage each other while other less so. Some may require more than one person to place the game piece in play and require collaboration. ARTIFACT “flips the script” of trust and the designer’s role, encouraging the public to design the outcome of the game.
