Exploring physical and virtual islands: Inchcolm Project

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


Inchcolm Project was a proof of concept that aimed to make apparent the connections between video games and performance, and to blur the lines between physical and virtual worlds and bodies. In designing the two-hour journey on Inchcolm I drew on both theatre and game design methods and brought the world of Dear Esther (The Chinese Room, 2012) to life on Inchcolm. What resulted was an interplay between two islands, one real and one virtual, and three experiential worlds, the world of the performance, the world of the game and Inchcolm, as a world in and of itself, its physical presence in constant tension with the visiting worlds.
