Ken Eklund and Annette Mees

ZOROP, 2010

Disguised as a dramaturgist and game designer, respectively, Annette Mees and Ken Eklund quietly continue to foment various plots for massively social and viral forms of play. Eklund and Mees both seek ways to use technology to create new narrative forms and experiences – he approaches it as a game designer, she is a director of immersive theater. Both believe “participation through play can make stories more personal, meaningful and adventuresome.”

Eklund with Jane McGonigal and team won an Honorable Mention Green Prix Award at the 2008 01SJ Biennial for their game World Without Oil.
