To dazzle: to both evade and disrupt, conceal and confuse.
Brave traveller! We are so happy to have found you!
An object will be entrusted to you. Guide it gently through its journey.
We can say this much: it is a thing and not a thing, information folded into waves, waves flattened into hope. An object made and re-made to evade the danger of being known and seen by those who would seek dominion.
Will you take the object into care and escort it to its destination?
Dazzle is a mixed work of gameplay and live performance art journey for one. Through the journey of escorting an object through a labyrinth of uneasy instructions, the player is encouraged to question the curatorial impulses of being online and instead foster a sense of custodianship, all while helping the object evade the surveillance of the machine. The journey of Dazzle considers the errant object, and curation as an individuated, collection-based, transactional practice.
