Rewarding the curiosity of the playful. Revealing the hidden moments of joy between digital things and the real world


Making stuff with things and things with stuff

Ludic Rooms is a postdigital arts organisation led by a collaborative approach and a passion for creative technology. Our work is enquiry-led and site responsive.

‘Canopy’ opening at Warwick Museum

‘Canopy’ opening at Warwick Museum

The work has been commissioned by Heritage & Culture Warwickshire as part ‘Reframing Sheldon’ of a broader development programme looking at the role of digital technologies in audience development and heritage engagement. The work focusses on how interactive technologies can facilitate a co-created contemporary map of Warwickshire. We have adopted psychogeographical techniques to explore the role of trees in the rural landscape and used this to explore themes of risk-taking and perspective-taking, themes very relevant to the client group.

Bring out your toys!

Bring out your toys!

We’ve recently been successful in a bid with the fabulous Knowle West Media Centre to deliver a new project as part of the Bristol Green 2015 Neighbourhood Arts Partnership. ‘The Forgotten Toys Compendium’ invites people to see junk in a fresh way by tapping into the shared experiences of play across different generations and cultures. It creates new invitations, pretexts, tools and spaces for social interaction, by starting with the very personal & then connecting up with neighbours and neighbourhoods. The project will work with lead local residents on a journey of social archaeology to rediscover and repurpose the playable gems hidden among the dusty piles of forgotten “junk” lurking in people’s attics, garages and sheds, shining a light on the latent social and cultural potential of these objects through the lens of collaborative play. These playable artefacts- from rusty bike wheels & old sledges to bent hoola-hoops, dusty console controllers and forgotten Furbies will be reborn through story-telling and active play. You can find out more and see the stories unfold at... read more
