[side B] is a lookbook that provides an account of how cameras were used in the design research project Juego es Poder that took place in Mexico City.
Cameras were not only used as a tool to make people deliberately orient themselves to space but also as devices for play, prompts for co-design activities that asked skaters to use the camera as proxy of a skateboard, and opportunities for experimenting with different modes of play such as through fictional games that were largely concerned with improvising strategies around perspective and positionality.
Photos from instant cameras were usually given to participants in the activities as a way to create a small channel of communication/exchange.
