deviator is a mixed reality artwork that blends radically altered versions of childrens’ games with subtle live performance, placing audiences as interventionists out on the streets, ready to creatively disrupt the city, one game at a time.
never have I come across a more immersive or interactive work… the work is fuelled by that most admirable of qualities: playfulness. above all, deviator is really, really fun.”
artshub review, zoe barron, april 2013
deviators top score so far was earned by ‘pirate penny‘ in perth earlier this year with a whopping 256 points. so that’s the score to beat, good luck sydney!
