An eight player Total Jump Training station will be part of Game On! at the Goffe St Armory in New Haven CT October 15th & 16th 12-6pm. Come jump with us!
Total Jump Training is an arcade style jumping game trains people for a coordinated total jump where every single living able-bodied human jumps and lands at exactly the same time. Participants stand on floor mats with electronic sensors and prompted by a countdown and animated characters attempt to jump and land on zero. The extreme difficulty of accomplishing a worldwide Total Jump combined with the ease and fun of training for it invites the audience to bridge the gap between a postmodern pluralistic world and the necessity of global coordinated solutions to immense problems facing the human race.
The two-player Total Jump game has been exhibited at EFA Project Space in NYC, Boston Cyber Arts in Boston, MA and Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, NH.
