THE INFINITE WALK
Game Art. 2012
The work is an interactive video-installation, made in a video-game platform. A predetermined avatar stand in an empty black space. Through a gamepad is possible to walk in the void. As soon as it walk in any direction, the character begins to duplicate itself and the scene turns into an abstract illusion, like in a sequential arrangement of mirror images. The duplicated images disappear when the player walks back the same route and gets to the starting point.
This walk can be understand as a metaphor about the formation of a group, a multitude, an identity, and the position of individuality amid of the mass.
