In this episode, we talk to game designer, curator and writer Holly Gramazio about situating invitations to play in public space in her own work and as director of Now Play This. The conversation continues as she reflects on her experience as co-author on Bernie De Koven's last book, The Infinite Playground: A Player?s Guide to Imagination, that traverses his incredible legacy of fun theory and play design.

And in the second half of the program, we?ll travel to Japan with researcher and artist Dr Hugh Davies, where we?ll explore the first in a two part story on the pre-history of the hit augmented reality game Pokemon Go.

Multiplicity of Play/ce and anti-disciplinary art

In this episode we are returning to a conversation held during Melbourne Design Week in March 2020 about the multiplicity of place arising from urban play. It begins with how First Peoples connection to place creates ways of being that enable reimagination, reconnection and reconfiguration of the world.

Boon Wurrung elder, N?arweet Carolyn Briggs speaks with RMIT academic Dr Olivia Guntarik, ACMI?s Seb Chan and Dr Troy Innocent about her knowledge and experience of place, navigating two knowledge systems in her daily life in Melbourne - the city that is now and the patterns that lie beneath that city.

In the second part of this episode, we talk to Lee Shang Lun about play as a methodology for anti-disciplinary art - returning to the role of The Situationists in reshaping cities and urban life.

World building IRL with McKenzie Wark; and float-down pop up food

In this episode of Playopolis, we?ll hear a conversation with McKenzie Wark as she resituates the Situationist International, talks about living in New York in 2020, and speculates on how seeds for other ways of life may rise from modern ruin.

McKenzie Wark is known for her writings on media theory, critical theory, new media, and the Situationist International. Her recent books include Capital is Dead and Reverse Cowgirl.

Following that is the story of the rise and fall of Jafflechutes. In 2014, on the windiest Autumn day in twenty years, Jafflechutes launched itself into the world... and promptly got stuck in a tree. We talk to the co-founders of this world first 'float-down pop up' eatery about what works, and what really doesn't, in the world of parachutable food.

How to read a city; and Melbourne's 'untranslatable' words

In this episode of Playopolis, we explore aspects of language, and how words and language allow us to shape the world around us. How do our worlds differ based on the language that we use? And how do they connect and intersect?  

In part one we speak with La Trobe University academic and Lingthusiasm podcast host Dr Lauren Gawne, and RMIT University academic and language researcher Dr Kerry Mullan to find out how to read a city by decoding the traces of language and culture that we find when exploring and observing our streets and laneways.

In part two, we explore Melbourne's 'untranslatable' words with 64 Ways of Being language researcher Rachael Vorwerk. For the past year, Rachael has been interviewing Melbourne's diverse communities about words that can only be translated to English through story. She asks the question:  Can a simple word shape how we experience the world?
