Game of the Future
A public park opposite the Art school in Kabelvåg,
Norway became a focus point during a 10-day, Transcultural
Mapping Workshop*. The
park itself was transformed into a giant board game,
with players throwing frisbee-like discs into the old
fountain, but it was not just "fun and games".
Each disc represented the uniquely Lofoten themes of
Fishing, Tourism, Oil and Wildlife, with the aim being
to predict which industry would contribute mostly to
the communities future. So what is the future?
The game will remain with the town of Kabelvåg,
so go on and make your move!
