Cicada Games is an ASMR audio play embedded in an augmented reality app. A whisper about history and time, isolation and conspiracies. In English and German.
A buzzing clatter fills the shimmering summer heat. Sitting in the green of the park, they murmur of the past, present and future. The cicadas of this audio play are gossipers and voyeurs. They observe the world and speculate about the nature of things. They use ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) to beguile and relax us, reminding us that there are realities beyond the human one. They promote awareness of our environment, our human and non-human companions*, and ourselves.
CICADA GAMES is available in Kongreßpark, Vienna and worldwide.
