Akron won $5MM to "Reimagine the Civic Commons," and invited me to help.
Our team was challenged to create a prototype that would attract students and workers downtown for non-event related activities.
We conceived of a kinetic work of art that would provoke engagement and bring people together.
We created "Lose Your Marble" as an urban game that incentivized teamwork and downtown activity.
Participants used #LoseYourMarble on social media to challenge their friends to come out and play.
Our prototype served as an inexpensive social/urban research experiment.
We look forward to using what we learned to #KeepAkronWeird and get #AKRowdy
