Jeff Hull: “Unlocking the Power of Play; Immersive Narrative in the Civic Realm”

April 27, 2012 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm  |  Media Theater, M110


Jeff Hull is engaged in a decade long metaphysical street battle against banality and routine. This takes the form of fictional cults with real world induction centers, pirate radio broadcasts from rogue agencies, bizarre team building exercises, guerrilla masonry, covert subterranean exploration, sasquatch dance bombs, and all manner of subterfuge. As the founder of Oaklandish and The Jejune Institute he has taken Situationism and Street Art in unseen new directions, blowing minds and winning awards along the way. His talk will offer a glimpse into the future of storytelling.

Jeff Hull is the creative director of Nonchalance, a San Francisco based Situational Design agency whose mission is to provoke discovery through visceral experience and pervasive play. This is achieved this by means of interactive narrative, game design, augmented reality, automated environments, event production, installation art, spatial navigation and cultural curation. They are best known for their award winning independent projects The Jejune Institute and Oaklandish.
