TIME WHAT DAY (currently in development)
An interactive narrative located in both digital and physical performance spaces inhabited by the Player. Based on the logic and philosophy of Lockean Memory Theory, the performance is a destabilization of memory, time, and space. The Player enacts identity (de/re)formation through extracted narrative/aesthetic structural elements of cerebrally remembered experiences via a Hypertext Game coded in Twine, in which the Player must inscribe their own memories into the physical performance space to progress through and complete the game. I am currently writing and coding this project as a part of my thesis research; the Beta version will be complete in March.

President Garfield lays dying behind a curtain in the White House – a bullet is buried deep in his belly, and Dr. D Willard Bliss is trying desperately to find it. Enter Alexander Graham Bell, overwhelmed and exhausted by the success of his revolutionary telephone. Both men seek greatness: for Bell, an invention that will redefine his success as a scientist; for Bliss, to be the ultimate medical savior of the nation. As Garfield slowly succumbs to sepsis, their failed attempts to save him fully-charge the motivations of Bell’s Assistant, Charles Sumner Tainter, as the feedback from a faulty circuit suggests that what they’re searching for may not be a piece of lead.
