Tiger by the Tail


Tiger by the Tail is an interactive website that explores playground rituals in the time of quarantine and isolation. To have a tiger by the tail is to have found oneself involved in something far more formidable that one might have anticipated. The work features a speculative playground, part game, part experimental documentary, that explores playground phenomena during Chicago’s four phases of quarantine between March and August of 2020. The work uses the emergence of folk games within the format of an online multiplayer platform to explore sensations of time, isolation, collaboration and play in the midst of a community facing the unprecedented challenges of our time.
