Consensus

Video game / Experiment 

Consensus is an interactive experience that aims to examine the relationship between an individual’s worldview and that of its surrounding - how they affect, limit, and shape each other over time. Through reorganization of basic units, each participant can strengthen or weaken what has been done before them, eventually contributing to the materialization of an “agreed” object.

Go Ski

Animation short 

Tamar is a 25 years old young woman who is riding in a skilift chair in an endless loop. By not going down to ski with the others, she's choosing to stay on the sidelines. Her solitude is broken when a stranger chooses to sit beside her, and Tamar gets a chance to contemplate what she really wants.
