The Pink Shadow is contributing to Craft Cubed 2018 during the month of August with her Pink Shadow game. The game is a token and card based game that travels where The Pink Shadow goes, spreading superpowers as she goes.
As The Pink Shadow travels through time and space, she enables other beings (only humans at this stage) to collect and use super-powered tokens.
The tokens celebrate the materiality of objects we use daily and are made from neon acyrlic, leather, wood, textile, metal and are hand-etched to indicate a specific power.
The Game suggests that we connect them to behaviours to enhance us as humans. Tokens are passed between people, enabling them perhaps on one occasion to “be nicer to THAT person at work” or “give yourself a time bonus to finish THAT task”. My favourite possibility is “a 25% greater likelihood that a member of your family might offer to wash the dishes for you”
Once a person has completed the task they may pass the token onto someone they think might benefit from the now supercharged token.
Game cards and pouches can also be purchased and used.
The Game is spread through different people and spaces. 1st Place is a box on a gate at my house where tokens will be placed at specific times and days. Other locations will be determined by my travels during August, potential participants can book a 2.5 minute session for exchange of tokens. All necessary information is available on this page website (sign up to newsletter to be informed of details) and Instagram @cipiincolour during August.
The Pink Shadow is a superperson who travels through time and space, but home is the centre of all things. This project starts at my home, and travels through time, space and other beings and their homes.
Participants in the Game make the game travel to more places as they follow their daily movements. Plesae note though that SuperPower transference is not guarenteed.
The Pink Shadow is a mysterious figure, as yet unresearched and identified due to her elusive nature. The Castlemaine Daily newspaper has so far made the only link to this person.
All we know thus far is this:
- There is plenty of pink string involved
- She has the capacity to shut down art events at will
- Rumours suggest she offers tokens to assist holders of those tokens do extra – ordinary things
- She has ano-digitale capacities far beyond the average human
Believe me when I say that all efforts are being poured into uncovering what this extra-human can offer us here on planet earth right now.
