Consume or Die
2014
‘Consume or Die’ is a digital work which adopts videogame mechanics in the generation and collection of a succession of power-ups / consumer objects. The digital simulation is presented in auto-play mode where the player-object triggers sweeping movements through the generated space. The sequence runs continuously with accents of repetition layered with random patterns of events in the scene. Speed varies depending on the amount of items consumed. These items are based on the discarded household items depicted in the ‘unswept floor’ genre of mosaic tiles by Sosus of Pergamon, second century BC. The repeating floor pattern is based on a fragment of Roman floor mosaic found in Padua.
