Serious Gaming

The Palace of Venaria (Italian: Reggia di Venaria Reale) is a former royal residence and gardens located in Venaria Reale, near Torino. TAGSCAPE was invited to carry out workshops here in 2018 and 2019.

Ecogeographer tavelled with Dr John Martin and Andy Hughes for the second time to Turin for the third edition of the International Summer School – Learning by Game Creation – organized by a Joint Project of the Politecnico di Torino and University of California, 1st to 8th September 2019, Torino. Our eyes were further opened to how important the project we have created called TAGSCAPE is to the heritage sector and how we can learn so much from them, particularly the participants and professors we meet at this summer school.

‘As our group collaborated to create our miniature landscape, we used our bodies and verbal language; our miniature landscapes expanded our gestural and verbal communications into inscriptions. This inscription as a miniature landscape reflected the ways we relate to our material world through our mediated intersubjective context.’ Lili Raygoza UCLA | Culture and Performance M.A./Ph.D Student UCLA | Anthropology B.A.
