From the Turing Test to the Amazon Mechanical Turk, role-playing has represented a significant force in furthering the ideology of technological innovation.
Nobodies-for.bots is a quick and dirty workshop by Hackers and Designers, where participants are put inside a thriller-scenario and must play it out with the other participants: humans and bots alike. This is an exploration in reality-making and collective-being in a pan-usership and truths-rich era.
The workshop kicked off with simple role play exercises to develop the characters and set the scene. Participants plugged in their own text lines into the bots’ code as part of co-character and plot development that would unfold IRL via the messaging application Telegram. Then we played out the narrative, making a collective and kaleidoscopic story with characters that reflect upon decision making amongst new kinds of kin.
