The Museum of Minor Incidents (MOMI) has opened its doors at Aichi, Japan!
In this set of site-specific audio-games we show a mosaic of small dramas, of hope, surprise and relief arising from unconnected, hyperlocal events. We highlight small incidents that can happen to us everywhere - as individuals, as families, friends, or companies. Small incidents that interrupt our individual feeling of control and form our collective memories and make us change our behaviour: We invent strategies of coming to terms with this mysterious thing that one might call fate.
All playable exhibits are based on facts and fictions of people who live and work in Nagoya and Okazaki. Backbone of our research are more than 60 interviews we conducted in spring 2013, and a precise survey of people’s environment and their unique physical, architectural and social conditions. Put together within the framework of game mechanics from local children’s games over arcade games, from physical games to role-playing, we create playable experiences for real people in real places.
Check out the MOMI in english or japanese on your mobile device. Even if you are not in Japan, you can play exhibit 01 everywhere (some of you might already know it ;)) Now first visitors are learning how to play “KAME-WUSHU” :)
