ΘuterPlace ΛɌ is part of the brick-n-mortar mission of Λn Solas Sí ΛrtScience and is intended to be an experiential full-time Live-learn-Make environment where our cooperative troupe can thrive and share an augmented landscape architecture for creative collaboration.
Actual and Telepresent members are united within one pervasive Massive Multiplayer Online System for Live Action Role Play. It resembles Niantic’s Pokémon GO except with a sober agenda of exploring how best to adapt to demands for change that difficult for many of us to face, understand, and accept. Accomplish via an unobtrusive, all but invisible Geofenced Social Network, only one of several essential cyberphysical utilities embedded in the architecture of our landscape.
Our Sociocratic Decision-Making will be informed through Collaborative Action, Research, Design, Development to coordinate the time, talent, and treasure of artists, artisans, and performers, as they engage in world-building, scripting, blocking, character design, development, the necessary diegetic or non-diegetic communication for participants.
ΘuterPlace ΛɌ will be a network of unique landscape architectures for sharing narratives that engage heart and mind, amplifying a signal that cuts through the noise of modernity, communicating by demonstration using tools seemingly indistinguishable from magic.
“You never change something by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
