geobio

geobio is an interactive multimedia installation that utilizes salvaged consumer electronics to influence a digital landscape. Interactions with objects such as answering machines and alarm clocks transforms the created environment into a chaotic field of broken household items, accelerates the changing of the weather and produces a cacophonous soundscape. If the player chooses not to interact with the appliances the original landscape slowly regenerates.

SPLIT_LOGO_White.png

Split

Split presents two distinct environments displayed on separate monitors. Players are encouraged to collect objects while avoiding obstacles, but only a single set of controls is offered for the two unrelated spaces. The game uses the setbacks and frustrations inherent to this format to reflect on the social discordance and political division we experience between our loved ones when trying to talk across ideological differences.

RAT_S
