" Fusion Olympics "
As we found some of local/traditional sports being adapted by international multi-sports event such as the Olympic Games, it cemented our notion that people have started to get bored with modern sports. We’d like to defy the convention in sports to be negotiated and combined with other local sports and games. Game is a mode of communication through competition and teamwork, also how to find a shared way to achieve mutual goal.
We will conduct a research about traditional games that have been popular to be upgraded and negotiated together with all folks from different ages and backgrounds. The game system, rules, fields, costume and tools are some of the matters to be discussed. Supporting tools such as basketball ring, net, goal (footbal), ball, etc will be using recycled or found object.
