a geography of being – Title Screen

This is the title screen for the new game that I’m building. The video game is one component of the installation titled “a geography of being” that will be featured as part of the exhibition Regeneration at the New York Hall of Science. “a geography of being” is a creative reflection on the realities of undocumented youths in the United States. The exhibition opens on October 27th 2012 and will be on view through January 13th, 2013. Along with the video game, “a geography of being” will feature kinetic wooden sculptures titled “undocumented drones” that are networked to the game to help the player along the three levels of the game.

MaGiKworld Animation Studios

Today I watched an animated adaption of Mo Willem’s “Kunnfel Bunny” and waited to see who produced the animation. It was MaGiKworld Studio. So I looked them up online and was surprised to see that they freely present their animations online. We just had to watch “Where the Wild Things Are” and they did a great job of staying true to the simple sincerity of the story and the aesthetics. Unfortunately, they aren’t available full-screen, but still a good quality. Check them out – MaGiKworld Studio.
