Kent Sheely – Aspect

Abstract:
A meditation on video games, dreams, and walking with our shadows.
“Aspect” presents the game world as a kind of curated dreamspace, in which we may encounter our shadow through the actions we carry out vicariously through the characters we control on the screen. We must recognize that the actions we take in the game world reflect the darker inclinations within ourselves, and it is only by confronting this Shadow Self that we may find peace.
