Can You See Me Now? (2003)

Can You See Me Now? (CYSMN) is a mixed reality game, where performers on the streets of a city use handheld computers, GPS and walkie talkies to chase online players who move their avatars through a virtual model of the same town.

CYSMN was built in the Equator project on the EQUIP architecture in partnership with artist group Blast Theory. 

Can You See Me Now?

In collaboration with Blast Theory.

Commissioned by Shooting Live Artists – a strategic initiative by Arts Council England, BBC Online and b.tv/The Culture Company
