Topography Seed Grant Presents at Transmediale

Over the first week of February, the Topography project, a seed grant supported in part by the Brown Institute, exhibited Missile Command, an excerpt from the larger multi-format project.

Hannah Jayanti at TransmedialeMissile Command is a story told at a game console inside a nuclear control facility. It follows a 1980’s Atari developer who took inspiration from nuclear game theory. The short film asks: what times, scales, and histories are left untouched by an unbeatable arcade game that points towards the end of the world?

The project, led by Hannah Jayanti and Alexander Porter, is an excerpt taken from the artists’ forthcoming, multi-format project Topography.
