Prerecorded video depicts the creation of the work itself. Textured into the background is a live video feed of the player.

This work subverts the preoccupation that a scored game would normally demand, by foregrounding the live video feed.

The player, who was previously on the outside, peering in, then suddenly has a fishbowl moment. From there, players find themselves investing more deeply into a concentration state, or stumbling self-consciously.
