Guardians of hidden universes
Dena, Christy (2013) Guardians of hidden universes. [Digital/Creative Work]
“Guardians of Hidden Universes” is a playful story for experiencing on your phone in the street. You’re a Guardian of Hidden Universes, and when you check your Communication Terminal you find the Guild has made a terrible mistake they need you to repair.
The experience lasts about 15-25 minutes, and takes you around whatever city you happen to be in. That’s right – you can play it in any city in the world!
The app was launched at Popup Playground‘s 2013 Fresh Air Festival – a new pervasive gaming festival in Melbourne, Australia.
This playful story is inspired by the idea of creating a locative-experience that is not site-specific. How can we have an experience than engages with the environment that also can work worldwide? The story is also playing with the idea of engaging with a character and a space and intuition within a short period of time.
The short and playful experience is a Universe Creation 101 production. It was conceived, written, and designed by Christy Dena; with artwork, coding, and interface design by Elroy.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
