an interactive murder mystery art installation
Can you catch a child serial-killer? The only (known) link is the house in which they were all resident at the time of their deaths. You -- investigative journalist extraordinaire -- are sent to piece together this mystery, and maybe even figure out 'WhoDunnit'. Decode the clues, interview the suspects, solve the crime - it's all up to you.
A gallery based installation combining art, actors and multimedia.
"House" was largely an art exhibition, but also included a computer animated phone which you could use to 'communicate' with suspects, a looped video, and one actor. Upon walking into the gallery, one could be mistaken for thinking it was a show for children: 6 bright colours covered nearly every object, there were toys on the floor, things to move around on the walls... even a discarded toddler-sized sock. But of course, upon reading the painted quilt, one discovers what is really afoot. Did you work out which suspect was killing these children, and why?
"Well, at least this exhibition has last-ability! I'm going to be here for days dammit! Well done."
"My mighty brain is sorely vexed but greatly entertained; the fiendish nature of the quest ensures I'll come again."
"Totally gorgeous show. Social activity, pensive moments and so tactile. I loved it."
"Amazing and infuriating. Well done. I will be thinking about it for a while."
"Nice integration with the actor giving a sense of the living community."
"Very original! We were really impressed with the level of thought used to compose your work."
