The installation shows early versions of the web interface for the game, video documentation of the work and a three screen projection. The projection is an interactive recording of an entire game of Can You See Me Now? You can follow individual players, watch from above or explore alone as the game unfolds.
“A crucial feature of Blast Theory projects is the ability to extend user and audience affect outside the game - rather than delimiting our consciousness to the stereotypical and virtual, the gameplay pushes us to understand aspects of ourselves, our communities and social responsibility. This is partially achieved by the very visceral gameplay - in CYSMN? the players and gameplay self-generate affects of pursuers and pursued. ... It was encouraging to see Blast Theory awarded the Prix Ars Electronica Golden Nica, which has in the past lauded some commercial, apolitical projects.”
