Sukey: Keeping demonstrators safe, mobile & informed (2011)
Sukey is an application designed to “keep protestors protected and informed during protests.” Per Sukey.org, When (protestors) “see something interesting, (and Sukey) is confident that something has actually happened,” Sukey keeps you updated. Sukey is a tool or application for “keeping protestors, safe, mobile, and informed.” And was inspired by the Live Protest Map (above).
For my sixth build I decided to continue developing the Game Board by adding Game Pieces and Objects. I created game pieces for Photo Journalists, Student Protestors, and Riot Police. I created game objects by adding signs and barricades.
The result was a game board with pieces and objects.

The result was a third digital diarama of a second place within the psycheographic space of the student riots.
With this build I experimented with using objects as triggers to change “places” from those within the fire, to within the looting, to within the area of fighting over fences.
To change your place from the center fire to the adjacent Top Shop and homes area, leave the center area and touch the megaphone.

I order to get there you have to pass through a crowd…. It turns violent.

That man there had a knife in his hand. (freeze frame shot of man with knife gesture)
Get punched in head camera down – you can watch footage of your footsteps later…
