Project: Aria End

Aria End employs the video game concept of an endlessly mutating death labyrinth, projecting this world inside a 4-channel video cube. By recalling the way we interact with online media—clicking, zooming and scrolling—the labyrinth becomes a circuit board for lost, anxious feelings. Perspective dances between first-person and aerial, claustrophobic tunnels transformed to dazzling patterns. The end result will be an experimental game about alienated feminine bodies and feral architecture.
