Sympathy for Pacman is an interactive sculpture that seeks to replicate the actions and life of the Pacman character. A television is mounted on a rotating platform which allows the user to turn the onscreen character in the direction the TV is facing. At the same time the user is confronted with an ongoing stream of cheese puffs that they must manage.
Coordinating onscreen actions with those in physical space become mentally difficult to manage. Some of the tension is broken by the physical action required to interact with the system.To see more work in the series ALT CTL click here.
