In this conversation, Jamin Warren, founder of Gameplayarts, engaged with Australian artist Lauren Moffatt about her captivating exploration of liminality and the blurred boundaries between digital and organic life through her game-based artworks.

Moffatt's diverse training in painting, new media theory, and audiovisual creation informs her hybrid, iterative works that prompt participants to "play between worlds." Across her practice, she crafts immersive environments that challenge notions of singularity and individuality, inviting audiences to consider the paradoxical subjectivity of connected bodies and our embeddedness within complex, adaptive ecosystems.

Throughout the discussion, Moffatt and Warren explored into the thematic threads that unite three of Moffatt's seminal projects: Bubble Vision, Local Binaries, and Of Hybrids and Strings. These works collectively explore the fragility of the "bubbles" - both physical and conceptual - that we construct around ourselves, as well as the liminal spaces between self and other, human and non-human.

Through this thought-provoking dialogue, Moffatt and Warren illuminated how game-based art can serve as a powerful medium for exploring the liminality at the heart of the human experience - the porous boundaries between the real and the virtual, the individual and the collective, the natural and the technological. Their conversation inspires new ways of understanding the world and our place within it.

This event was part of Now Play This Game Design Labs.

Our Approach

Game-Making Practice

It's for everyone! We believe that game design and thinking is not limited to "the video game industry." It's a creative point of view that any discipline can use.

LEARN FROM Doing

Our workshops are focused on activities with a majority of time spent on making things.

this is only the start

You'll grow from here. We hope that this is a stepping stone for you to permanently work with the material of games.
