Narrative Strategies 2012: Future Perspectives
On the 4th and 5th of December 2012, we convened a small group of experts and interested parties at the Casa Da Mudos in Madeira, Portugal, for a meeting to discuss ongoing and upcoming issues in the creation of narratives in physical space. We encountered locative, movements based, physical and context aware narratives, online spaces, alternate realities, scams, scambaiting and haunted houses.

Andreas Zingerle: A scam in a suitcase
The Re: Dakar Arts Festival project documents an ongoing art scam form. The scammers approach artists and galerists with open calls for a fake festival in Dakar, Senegal. To appear professional, they adopt different identities. To unveil their practice, three virtual characters including their online identities were created to scam the scammers. Investigate their stories in an installation and find entrance points to continue following the story online.
