For the purpose of this mis-guide, we have decided to play with the existing environment at the CJ building. Since the aim of this project is to make people see the campus differently, we thought that by creating a riddle race, we will encourage participants to consider and acknowledge the different historical artifacts present within this building. Therefore, we will force them, in a way, to dérive from their common itinerary, similarly to Guy Debord’s concept, by encouraging them to engage within a game that will take place on Instagram. By creating this riddle race, our goal is to challenge the existing knowledge that one has about CJ building; we hope to encourage each participants to think about this space differently. Indeed, instead of only considering it as a “school environment”, we hope to bring a ludic aspect to it, while at the same time, allowing everyone to experience it as if it is an art gallery.
