A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
This virtual *vivarium* represents my attempt at translating the aesthetic of a piece of contemporary art into a video game. Shamiana by Nilima Sheikh is a set of painted hanging scrolls and canopy that function as a small tent for community gatherings. You can find this piece at GoMA, South Brisbane.
Shamiana symbolises union and the paintings tell the story of every day life in a magical, metaphorical way. The specific canvas scroll that I've chosen, at least to me, makes you feel at one with the universally-relateable, mundane yet profound concepts of birth and death.
If you're interested checkout the post-mortem here.
