Hakan Lidbo


Alterplex is a strategic board game where the board is invisible, except when seen through the pieces. The rules for moving the pieces are decided by the animations of the board, and constantly change, following a hidden pattern. The game is synchronized with a musical structure that guides the players with timing and strategy. As players have to predict many possible futures, the game becomes a training tool for non-linear thinking.

Following a career in electronic music with more than 350 records released within numerous genres, Hakan Lidbo (Sweden) is now exploring new ideas with the same inexhaustible energy in the fields of interactive art, games, innovations, architecture, society, media, events, and robotics. He also founded the Rumtiden Idea Lab in Stockholm Sweden, where his team explore the intersection between new art forms, science, and society.
