‘Unboxing’ at Behavior Design Amsterdam #16 - Leapfroglog
This is very good stuff from Kars: from the challenges of designing with machine learning through to Value Sensitive Design and the complexity of good work.

Pig Chase, a game for pigs and humans – Hubbub
"The choice for light as a medium is the result of a systematic exploration of what kinds of stimuli pigs respond to. We were aware of some evidence indicating pigs enjoy light. But when we saw how they reacted to a laser pointer, we knew we were on to something." Kars' frankly crazy game for pigs and people is in video form now, but he's deadly serious about it existing. I'm quite excited for him.

The Transformers at dConstruct 2011 – Hubbub
Kars' "hypertext remix" of his marvellous dConstruct talk. It was sensitive and well thought-through, and appealed to me as both a designer and game maker. Very much worth your time.

Slides and notes for ‘Limits of the Imaginable’ – a lecture on the future of applied game design
Kars on games, cities, and biology. Lovely. And: he's exploring game-design for *pigs*, which makes me impossibly excited.

Leapfroglog - Jane Jacobs and London’s Old Street area
"Perhaps the Shoreditch startups are more effective than their Dutch counterparts not just because they do more with less... but because they are in London. A city at a different scale than Amsterdam or for that matter the greater Amsterdam area, the Randstad as we call it around these parts. A city with a more diverse ecosystem of services and things, smaller services, more specialised services, ready to be employed by companies like BERG and RIG and Tinker, enhancing their abilities when needed."

"We create physical, social games for public space. Our games get people moving and talking. They stimulate their creativity and get them to connect." Kars has a name for his new venture.

Leapfroglog - Cities, systems, literacy, games
A nice post to end the year from Kars - it feels like a top-trump of so many things that have risen to the surface in my head in 2008.

Leapfroglog - Download my travel-time map
Kars releases the source for his travel-time map of the Netherlands. Nice to see the artefact-as-code, as well as the artefact-as-design.

Leapfroglog - The making of a travel-time map of the Netherlands
"I had an example, I had some data, and I had a little experience with making things in Processing." Kars explains the thinking behind his time-travel maps, built in Processing. Really nice work.

august 2008 by infovore : “ What’s Design Mean to You? An Interview with Kars Alfrink” Aug. 10, 2008
"Kars does a lot of prototyping, which he explains in some detail. He also said some pretty interesting, and uncoventional, things about the relationship between design and understanding of, and involvement in, the technologies of implementation."
