Event description

Description

Prepare to be surprised by the unexpected within the Tiger Room. How will you respond? Catch the Tiger is a large-scale interactive game that challenges you to trap and release a tiger.

About

But this is no ordinary game. Designed to test how we react to changes in our environment, and to our own fluctuating anxiety levels, it is a multi-sensory physical game that you will experience with four other players.

Played in the visually striking “Tiger Room”, the game is inspired by a traditional Chinese puzzle, combined with geometry informed by George Hart’s mathematical study of orderly tangles.

Hosted within the National Facility for Human-Robot Interaction Research, Catch the Tiger is a collaboration between acclaimed architects Supermanoeuvre and researchers from the UNSW Creative Robotics Lab, the University of Sydney, Waseda University and the Black Dog Institute.

Total time required is approximately 40 minutes.

The game requires 5 people to play. Register individually and play with others or sign up with 4 friends.

Catch the Tiger is an artwork open to the public. However, as the creative team wish to collect data relating to the process of playing the game, it is subject to Ethics Approval. Under the conditions of Ethics Approval, participants must be over 18 years of age and must sign a consent form in order to participate (unless participating in a “drop in” demo session). Further information is available online here [downloadable Word version] [downloadable PDF version].
