A downloadable contemplation for Windows and macOS
monad is an audio-visual contemplation, meant to be experienced in a dark, quiet room, on a large screen with a surround-sound system or headphones, and with a multi-touch panel for input.
monad was initially conceived as an experiment with space, wherein at the very moment that the player engaged with the system, a white circle began to grow, unrestrained, until it occupied the entire screen, the entire space. Leaving no room for agency.
The black circle came about as a means for the player to regain space. The soundscape came about in order to give more dimension to the feelings that the visuals were already evoking.
monad is made with LÖVE, with help and support from that community as well as Louisville Makes Games. It was first exhibited at the Indie Games and Art Social during the AIGA Design week in September 2018.
monad was recently presented at Bit Bash 2019 at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry, and won first place in the "Physical Interactive Art" category at the Kentucky State Fair's Design Web Digital and Interactive Art exhibit.
monad will be in the Leftfield Collection at EGX 2019.
Linux and iOS versions will follow soon.
