Whether you realize it or not, our role in shaping the media grows stronger and more important each day. The decision to play a part in the media game is an active one, but thanks to technology, it’s easier than ever to follow.
While Fame Game maps, in a literal sense, the networks of capital, influence, and attention that contribute to New York’s cultural economy, here at Play we’re taking a closer look at the people, parties, and projects that drive it. Fame Game gives us a bird’s eye view of the who, what and why of New York cultural life. As a result, we’re looking at the big apple from the top of the stem. (ed: apparently, we’re also making absurd puns)
Our mission is to expose the inner workings of New York’s media game, keeping an eye on the best players and analyzing their strategies. We hope it will serve as a case-study compliment to Fame Game, and provide a chance to learn more about the players.
Remember, getting noticed is easy. Remaining noticed is harder. Come play the game with us.
