a new dubious social experiment from Counterpilot,
in collaboration with optikal bloc



  • About


    Commissioned by Darwin Festival, Brisbane Festival and Metro Arts

    Bad things are happening, and our heroes are at risk! From hungry sharks to deadly laser beams, danger is imminent and the only person who can stop it is you.

    Avoidable Perilsis a dubious new social experiment for anyone who can be bothered to help. A game for the masses, this work explores activism in the attention economy, and the challenge of large-scale teamwork.
