The Creators Project
Eyebeam Art+Technology Center
A new media art project re-evaluating the limits of mobile game space, and highlighting the emotional attachments we form to personal devices. The aim of the game was to drop a mobile device and record video from the highest possible drop point. An online leader board ranked the videos by height. Damaging the phone would void the game, a competition was held to design a way to protect the device.
The project started at the Eyebeam ArtHack in 2011, was awarded a development stipend by The Creators' Project (VICE Media) and exhibited as part of their New York Event the same year.
