  • Title: Criss~Crossing The Divine/Interactive Spiral Vortex Paint Game
    Writing Type: Sketch / Art Talk
    Exhibition: SIGGRAPH Asia 2016: Mediated Aesthetics
    Abstract Summary:

    Criss~Crossing The Divine/Spiral Vortex Paint Game is an interactive game installation conceived to address the ever-expanding religious intolerance fueling global wars. Attendees use interactive wands to curate topic-words and assign more or less importance to each topic they select. The player receives color coded scripture perspectives parsed from the individual’s search. No search results are the same. Directed to a website, the player learns from which 46,000 scriptures within The Old Testament, The New Testament, The Hindu Rig Vedas, The Quran, and Buddhist Texts, their color-coded text results originated.
