& then everything just-
in collaboration with Camilla Clarke
the start of an ongoing project
currently a digital interactive installation blend video game
& then everything just- is an interactive digital (for now at least) experience that will (eventually) invite the audience - the people, the community - to, together (if they can), take the position of the architects, the city planners, the judges, the politicians, the people who make the BIG decisions in, well, the world. The whole world.
Self guided through an interactive online installation, occasionally prompted by a performer through audio, we will begin the complicated and tangled journey of unpicking how we got here and where we are going. Through the collective act of imagining, we will choose the pieces of where we live that we want to take forward and begin to remould the bits we want to change.
