The Tate Modern Museum in London will be showing an exhibit entitled “The Fifth Floor: Ideas Taking Space” from December 16 to February 1. One of the exhibits is a board game by artist Nina Edge:

For The Fifth Floor she has devised a board game entitled 5D Everything. Played on five layers and based on solitaire, it combines elements of chance and player preference. Each counter is assigned a different value or meaning symbolising different elements of life, the 5th element signifying imagination.

By playing the game the player ‘selects’ counters – or values – which are eliminated from the board, finally leaving five counters that express our hopes, aspirations and fears. You are all invited to the exhibition to engage in this game of chance where fate and process intermingle.
