A GAME ABOUT FEAR



A Game About Fear (2020) is a commission by the Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) for the group show 20:20. A Game About Fear was created in direct response to #DCBlackout, an elaborate disinformation campaign that circulated on Twitter at the start of the George May Floyd protests in June 2020. The work uses AI generated text to question the authenticity of language as it passes through the many complex and sinister layers of our online context.

I live and work on the lands of the Gadigal and Wangal people of the Eora nation.
This sovereign land was never ceded.
The land I live on always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
