Kimberly Whiting: Conflict

  • Student Work
  • Type & Print
 The stag hunt ‘game’ is based on a game-theory mathematical problem which illustrates how conflicts become difficult to resolve, due to a lack of trust and information. I considered that the best way to illustrate this was to allow people to play the ‘game’ themselves – as such, I presented the problem in a wooden box, with pull out gamesheets and cards. The design is made to look like an old style board and card game, disguising the fact that it is practically unwinnable.
