The Contemporary Austin
Popform is a construction game designed for participants of all ages. It consists of over 300 pieces made to be connected to one another, resulting in three-dimensional arrangements that can vary in overall size, shape, and complexity. Each bright-orange piece contains eight tabs as possible connections to other pieces; where and how they can interconnect provides the overarching structural logic – and the only pre-established rule – of the game. Participants are invited to play with Popform by exploring different arrangements, discovering the system’s underlying logic, and collaborating with one another.
