Rider Spoke
On from 11 Oct 2007 till 21 Oct 2007
by Blast Theory

About: Rider Spoke

Take a cycle ride in the streets around the Barbican. A games console mounted on your handlebars will guide you as you roll through the City of London. Slip down an alley and find yourself in a quiet corner. Make a recording then move on glimpsing traces of other players, eavesdropping under a bridge or from the top of a multi story car park.

Rider Spoke mixes theatre and location-based games to create an interactive installation on the streets. It continues Blast Theory's groundbreaking sequence of games where none of the usual rules apply.

Blast Theory is internationally renowned as one of the most adventurous groups working with interactive media. The company creates games, installations and performances, and works for radio and TV. Best known for Kidnap, Desert Rain, Can You See Me Now? and Uncle Roy All Around You, the group has been nominated for four BAFTAs and has won the Prix Ars Electronica.

Blast Theory has shown work at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the ICC in Tokyo, the National Museum in Singapore, the Hebbel in Berlin, the Sydney Biennale and on Tate Online.
