Festival for Playful Public Spaces

Life in the Garden


Life in the Garden is a deck of stories. Draw five cards at random from a set of 50, put them between the covers of a tiny book, and you will get a coherent story every time. A series of procedurally generated meditations on the Garden of Eden, Life in the Garden is an interactive paper book with endless possibilities.

Life in the Garden is a collaboration between Eric Zimmerman and Nancy Nowacek.

Does every chance wandering always create a meaningful story?
