Urman Dictionary



Any creation or action which does not have intrinsic value but is intended to spread awareness or spark discussion.

Poking through the East Mid-Central Video Game Museum, Subash came across a strange exhibit. It was an old Atari joystick hooked up to a TV that was playing some fantasy adventure movie. You had to hold the stick to the right to make the movie play - otherwise it would pause. And sometimes it would pause anyway, and show a picture of the joystick button next to a number, and you had to press the button that many times for the movie to unpause.
Naturally the exhibit wasn’t any fun as a game, and it was an obnoxious way to watch a movie. It was clearly an articurio intended to get people thinking and talking about agency, interactivity, and what is and isn’t a game.
