An Instructional Guide to Awkward Moments

An Instructional Guide to Awkward Moments / 2019 / for Science Gallery Dublin


A booklet of short games about awkwardness and connection, designed for the Science Gallery in Dublin to run as part of their exhibition on intimacy. The games can be approached as rules for actual play, or purely as thought experiments.

The booklet is divided into three sections: Here, a series of games designed for the spaces within the gallery; Near, a series of games that can be played around the gallery and by visitors on their journey home; and There, a set of games speculating about the future of intimacy.
