I have made a couple of Art Games which, on the exterior,
are fun play things but that have a more serious conceptual element.
This piece is a rendition of the classic arcade game Space Invaders. Instead of space invaders, I've used chess pieces and the sounds are of real gun shots and screams. I created the piece after I had studied Baudrillard's book The Gulf War Did Not Take Place, and it refers to how contemporary warfare is similar to video games, where there's no real physical battle between two sides.
This is a game of Noughts And Crosses. The player gets to select Ganesha, Jesus or Buddha to play as. You compete against the other religious icons and the final boss is Satan. I believe that we should embrace all different religions and see the connections between them. This piece highlights the triviality of religious hatred.
are you for real?
