Pull the zipper and let it take you on a voyage inside your screen… and yourself. (Experience Z)

“A zipper is a sort of transitional object. Associated here with fun and discovery, it questions the way we view and interact with our daily surroundings. The variable evokes the 3rd dimension, or depth. The project plays with the codes of a 2D universe, where a 3rd dimension lurks, below. As if objects possessed many skins that we could peel off, one at a time, to reveal what is hidden underneath.”

Datum is a creature facing a series of choices—mountains to climb, rivers to cross. Help Datum grow… together. (Experience Datum

Datum breaks new ground in terms of interactivity by removing control from any one user. Datum’s growth is collectively decided upon and time constantly flows forward: there are no undos. It invites us to perceive the world differently by drawing attention to the choices we make throughout life. While the choices may be permanent, nothing is right nor wrong. All together, they simply paint a picture.”
