It’s Nice That
CENTRE FOR ALTERED TOGETHERNESS (www.c-a-t.world) is a journey through six illustrated virtual worlds created by artist Reza Hasni, interaction design studio Screensavers and sound designer Tengo La Firma in collaboration with MAMA MAGNET. Use arrow keys or W A S D to navigate, and spacebar to jump. Best experienced on desktop.
Set in a time of expanding cyberspace, C-A-T invites participation from users as they upload their consciousness in an avatar, then roam freely and interact with other visitors. It is a nod to the idea that while individuals may face social experiences together, they have different paths and encounters - informed by their personal context.
Built completely virtually during the COVID-19 lockdown, the experience offers connection with ideas of altered togetherness. If you see other avatars online, please be kind.
CENTRE FOR ALTERED TOGETHERNESS is online on www.c-a-t.world. Fine art prints are available on our web shop.
