As a new media artist, I am particularly interested in the vast, largely untapped potential that games and interactive systems have for engaging emotion. Interaction creates a level of personal investment that--through exploration and personal reflection, being shown rather than just told--has potential to deliver an expressive and emotive experience incomparable with other media. This potential is innate to the medium, but has been traditionally unexplored.
Whilst big budget video game developers constantly rehash the same masculine power fantasy for their selective target audience of gamers, I am determined to create work that frees interactive experiences from those cultural shackles. Descent represents one exploration of what this fledgling medium can achieve.
