Can you help a bunch of ghosts liberate a Google map? Welcome to Open Space, the Alternate Reality Game hosted by the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF).
What Is This?
*Each month or so, we provide a street-view Google Map, a little window into our modern world.
*Then we ask our rival teams of dead or imaginary characters (including intellectuals like Marshall McLuhan, revolutionaries like Commander Ramona, or even mythical creatures like Jingwei) to explore the myriad forms and meanings of ‘open space.’
*Waging a discursive battle (a high-brow flame war), they fight to defend or liberate the Google Map.
*What does it mean to defend or liberate a Google Map? Well, that's up to you! Go to our website, get more information, and start playing!
