Ben will be in residence at ISIS Arts throughout July, during his time with us he will undertake research and development into an intensive, 3D virtual reality indie game (Oculus Rift support) re-titledStory Generating Apparatus.
If you would like to join us for Ben’s talk please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a place
Benjamin tells us about the game he'll be working on during his residency: “The game narrative is experimental in that I am telling the story of a fictional, ex-video game hero on his deathbed. Yet, the memories this character has before becoming an extinct intellectual property are my own personal ones. It is an experiment in just how far a self-identity work can be taken, even at the expense of the artist's own ethics or morality. Story Generating Apparatus values introspective player experience as a gameplay mechanic, rather than the social, mystifying itself from how a game is supposed to socially function in society. All 3D models, visuals, character design, and programmed through Unity all rendered by myself.”
Benjamin is based in Nevada (USA), having just completed his Masters of Fine Art at University of Nevada Reno.
