Von Daniel Wetzel, Rimini Protokoll

Who is on the other end of the internet? How does an algorithm work? Who or what gives us instructions? And what is “fake” here? Bubble Jam is a game platform on whose server test players connect via smartphones that they are equipped with. They follow the chat of the developers located elsewhere and answer their instructions and questions for a perfect Bubble Jam round: What should it be about? About nightmares? Friends you have never seen? Photos that suddenly pop up? About, what kind of “person” you are? Or how life goes on? Bubble Jam measures reactions and uses this to determine who has to discuss what with whom. The voting results are used to derive questions that are now to be dealt with, first and foremost: Who plays? And who will be played with?
