For those of you who are in Austin, Texas enjoying the varied delights of SXSW, we’re pleased to announce that the launch of Would Anyone Miss You is now just 24 hours away! Here’s a photo from our amazing collaborator, Lottie Davies, of a crucial part of the game. All will be explained very soon… [...]
Hide&Seek are delighted to announce that we’ll be running a new live game at SXSW in Austin this week, from the 10th to the 14th of March.
It’s called Would Anyone Miss You, and it’s inspired by our previous project, Dreams Of Your Life, an interactive piece designed as a response to Carol Morley’s Dreams Of A Life.
What’s clear for us is that it would never have come together the way it did without the collaborators we worked with. We’d made some critical decisions about the project on our own: we knew we wanted it to be photographic, because anything drawn or animated might sit oddly next to the film. We knew we wanted text, because it gave us something rich and adaptable and private. And knowing we wanted those, we had a vision of writing on a window. A place you could be but not explore, and a voice you could hear but never meet.
