The Triptych Game


2013. Installation game. Collaborators: GJ Lee.

This installation invites the viewer to embody “the hand of God,” directly touching the altarpiece in order to populate and manipulate the world and inhabitants within. The triptych opens and closes based on the time of day, and seasons change based on the time of year.

All of the digital assets were hand-painted (acrylic on wood and paper) and the altartop is fabricated from laser-cut acrylic and stained wood. All audio is derived from field recordings.

Made in collaboration with the Jheronimus Bosch 500 Foundation. Installed and exhibited internationally, including the Stedelijk Museum ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands.
