THE MAKING OF FORMING GAME
Forming Game Instructions: Open box, unfold board. To begin play, place a shape on the board. Interact with the game using your hands. As it develops, the flow of shapes may suggest certain objects or a hidden order. You can bring forth certain forms or sit back and let them come to you. Playing takes time to master, as you must learn to evolve with the game. There is no winner or loser in the forming game, it is played for the fun of it, and although it begins with one piece, what develops is always a mystery ...
The result of several months of interplay between animation filmmaker Malcolm Sutherland and composer and musician Luigi Allemano, Forming Game is an engaging dance of shape and sound. Includes musical cadenza by Ravi Shankar. (via)
