My work explores ideas such as change over time, persistence and the
meditative properties of waiting through the interactivity of a digital game. The elements that make up the landscape change drastically over time, providing both obstacles and routes for navigation. Time can be accelerated by the player through hibernation, causing the landscape to transform at an increased pace. 

 

To hibernate is to take a moment of meditation and observe the landscape as it transforms, both to see where one can go and the change that has been enacted in the world. This is the vehicle by which the player can display passive persistence towards the landscape as it continuously transforms over time.
