Making it up as we go along

Kisha Bradley & Wybourn Community Primary & Nursery School, Sheffield

You can play with augmented reality games created by school children from Wybourn School who explored a virtual world where they defied gravity, pushed the limitations of reality, and made up the rules as they went along.

This is a new commission co-created by Lekisha Bradley, Playground Artist in Residence, and Wybourn School.


Kisha is a Sheffield-based participatory artist, challenging oppressive systems and experimenting with co-created spaces. In her work, she values and combines intergenerational and intersectional expertise, creativity and critical thinking. Kisha draws on her experience as a Black mixed race, working class woman working in engineering and the barriers of being undervalued and othered in those spaces. Her work plays with flipping hierarchies and encouraging ideas that at first glance appear ‘impossible.’
