Bot Party

Phoenix Perry (UK) & Charlie Ann Page (UK)

Bot Party is a game which explores intimacy through physical play using sound.

The bots have a problem. They have no way to communicate with their friends. Can you help? They need you to touch another human holding a bot. Through you the bots use the proprietary bot to skin to skin to bot communication protocol (BSSB) to send encoded secret messages to each other. Hold hands with other players to get the bot sound spectacular started!


De robots hebben een probleem. Ze weten niet hoe ze met hun vrienden moeten communiceren. Kun jij hen helpen? Raak een andere deelnemer met een bot aan. De bots gebruiken hun eigen robot-huid-huid-robot (RHHR) protocol om elkaar geheime boodschappen te sturen. Hou elkaars handen vast en laat het robotgeluidenfestijn beginnen.
