Prepare for citywide disruption as Australia’s notorious tactical media art group pvi collective take over the streets of Darlinghurst.
Immerse yourself in an outdoor game experience and become an urban ‘deviator’, temporarily transforming the city into a playground.
Your mission is to seek out 15 audio instructions hidden in public spaces and play as many of the games as possible. From guerrilla pole dancing and ring-a-ring-a-roses, to spin the bottle and twister, each instruction is an open invitation to exploring public spaces in a new way, and deviating from the norm.
Activating philosophies around revolution, deviator will alter your perception of life in the city as you know it. Are you ready for some serious playtime?
Warning: deviator contains mild sexual content, mature/suggestive themes, mild profanity or crude humour, mild alcohol, tobacco, drug use or references to these.
3g phones are provided by pvi and limited to 35 players per session
Please note: your photo id will be taken in exchange for phone issue
deviator has been restricted to 18+ mostly due to the safety issues involved in roaming the streets.
Presented for the International Symposium of Electronic Art (ISEA) in partnership with the National Art School.
