Dr. Viktor Bedö Viktor is a Berlin-based street game designer, researcher and innovation consultant.
Viktor is a Berlin-based street game designer, researcher and innovation consultant. He is founder of Tacit Dimension, an independent research lab for street games and a former member of the collective Invisible Playground. He received his PhD in Philosophy for his work about embodied knowledge and urban mapping. His games were featured by international festivals like Metropolis Copenhagen and exhibition spaces like Neue Nationalgallerie Berlin. Viktor’s recent game projects and publications explore the unique ways of how playing and designing street games generate knowledge about urban life and how to control PONG with a skateboard.
Laboratories are sites of experimentation and so are streets. The talk will elaborate on rapid street game design as research and prototyping tool for urban change, on implicit knowledge and on the permeability of the magic circle. Additionally, it will provide a sneak preview into SkatePong and Asymmetric games, two recent early stage projects from Tacit Dimension.
