CANTO IX is a three-channel interactive installation inspired by Dante Alighieri's description of angels and their avatar-like relationship to god.
CANTO IX CHAT
Interact with CANTO IX CHAT by typing messages to an angel, whose house and body physics can be altered by strings of words that frequently appear in self-help articles.
CANTO IX BATTLE
Interact with CANTO IX BATTLE with WASD and arrow keys. Change the camera angle and control the movements of interchangeable angel action figures.
CANTO IX APARTMENT
Use the arrow keys to help this angel tumble around or throw a stretchy tantrum alone in an apartment with no exit door. Based on the space I lived in at the beginning of the Covid pandemic.
