Untitled is a social experiment that challenges people of different faiths & political backgrounds to explore — and in some cases embrace — each other's beliefs. It will launch as a web-based game in mid-2021.
The game aims to tackle two common problems in debates about politics & religion:
- Labeling. Labels like "conservative", "liberal", "Christian" or "Muslim" oversimplify people's beliefs. Though labeling is a natural human tendency, participants in a debate must be willing and able to unpack labels to understand what each other actually thinks.
- Unconscious bias. Implicit or explicit biases kick in when someone sees a stranger's basic profile: picture, name, job title, hometown. Identity characteristics warp the lens through which we perceive strangers' beliefs.
