When we talk about ‘world-building’, what building materials are we using? From games design to sonic arts to digital technologies to physical sculpture, our participants consider and construct alternative narratives in many different ways. In this panel, we’ll be reflecting on how different creative approaches help us explore both what our worlds are composed of, and our role in composing them.

David King is a games designer, developer, researcher, and educator, and is the Course Leader for MA Games Design and a Lecturer for BA (Hons) Games Design at London College of Communication. As a designer, David aims for small elegant systems which create an emergent sense of playfulness between players and objects, and between the players themselves. As an indie developer, he experiments in a broad range of mediums – looking at board games, digital games, games as installations and pen and paper role-play games.

Deborah holds an MA in Design Interactions from the Royal College of Art and is currently Lecturer in Emerging Technology at London College of Communication, UAL. Her practice is centered around her continued interest in Mongolia, technology and ecology.
