Pig Chase (2013) is a project prototype from a research collaboration between Utrecht School of the Arts, Wageningen University, and Wageningen UR Livestock Research which is designed to investigate inter-species play and how digitally mediated play could open a space for inter-species communication. The project focuses on animal welfare and using games as a means to entertain the livestock and reduce undesired behaviours (such as biting) between the animals as they suffer from boredom while in their pens. The Danish government introduced an amendment to the law governing livestock which required the introduction of a toy (usually a ball on a…
