Go To Sleep

Obvious Agency, 2017

 

Go To Sleep is a real-world walking simulator/adventure game about insomnia. Players enter a replica bedroom and interact with objects, triggering story elements and music that are performed and mixed live.

 

As participants activate the inner world of the artist through their actions, the loneliness of a sleepless night transforms into a shared experience.

Began development as a part of Barn Arts Residency program in 2016.

Premiered at the Art Church of Philadelphia June 22-25th, 2017.
