TAG TALES is a web-based interactive word game situated on screen. TAG TALES was conceived to be played in public areas where people shut down and turn on cell phones, mobile devices and portable computers.
TAG TALES gives the passerby the occasion to stop their daily routine to exchange a few quick thoughts.
It also offers an opportunity to become aware of the transformations of our mental and collective environments that influence more and more our habits, and our way of life.
With the advent of video art in France in the '70s, Croiset produced videotapes, installations and performances, presented in national and international events in New York, Paris, London, Rome, Bonn and Berlin, Taipei, and broadcast on television channels in Europe and the U.S.
Croiset’s research and experimental reflection are often linked to a sociological approach and committed to its involvement in public art. Nicole Croiset lives and works in Toronto.
