Metaform Cards

card game

Metaform is a set of cards with which users choose how to play a game. It consists of three types of cards: 1) Black cards have words about fundamental understanding; 2) white cards have forms ranging from rudimentary shapes to pictures; 3) framed cards have sample rules to be combined. It reveals formal metaphors and cultural defaults that arbitrate our associations, while also playing with the flexibility of our relational capacity. (3.25" x 2.25")
