Matt Parker

Recurse

Abstract:
A digital game about movement in the physical space, the game’s distorted mirror stimulates players to twist and stretch their bodies to obtain a high grade. Swinging one foot inside a green spot this side of the screen, while stretching his hand to reach another green patch on the other side, keeping inside a red spot, is something that can only be done by someone fully conscious of his body and fully unconscious of his aspect.
