A trip through a hypnagogic state.

Silent, but if you happen to have Morton Feldman* playing in the background, that works.

Instructions: click mouse button and hold to move. 'I' to invert colors, if you prefer.

Epilepsy warning: strobe effects. Although I recommend playing the game, here is a gameplay video.

Created with Unity3D and BlendMode plugin.

"It is a pure, abstract experience, and if I had to compare it to any traditional horror scenario, I have to wonder if it's similar to the feelings supposedly experienced during an alien abduction." - Michelle Ehrhardt, Kill Screen

Selected for the LeftField Collection at EGX Rezzed 2018. Also exhibited at solo and 3-person shows in Rockville, MD:  Procedural Experience at VisArts (2017), and In Play, Flow, and Ritual at King Street Gallery (2018). It was a part of the group exhibition Art of Mind at Imurj in Raleigh, NC, in 2019.
