Tactical media art group pvi collective and Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre will provide some fun for the whole family later this month. 

Deviator will he held in Bunbury's CBD from Tuesday, March 12 to Saturday, March 16, with sessions taking place at 6pm and 7.30pm each day.

Over the course of one hour, participants (or 'deviators') will use a pvi smartphone to find hidden audio instructions and complete various tasks. 

Re-imagined versions of Twister, sack race, ring-a-ring-a-roses, and spin the bottle will be on offer during each session. 

Teams will receive points for completing each activity. 

The experience positions 'games' as a "potential trigger to alter the official narratives of place". 

A crew of local artists assisted pvi collective in adapting the concept to the location. 

Edith Cowan University - South West senior lecturer, arts and humanities Dr Vahri McKenzie said the "interactive, game-based performance" would bring something new to the region. 

"They [pvi collective] are a group of international significance, so it's cool that such an organisation is bringing one of its works here," she said. 

"We could all do with a little bit of a shake-up, which something like this will provide.

"Most of us use smartphones every day, so it makes sense that there would be works out there that use them. 

"Creativity and thinking outside the box will be vital for young people throughout their lives."
