hello, is it me you're looking for?

Helen Bentley is a interactive artist.

A first class graduate of UWE's Media Practice course, it was on the strength of the work she produced for her degree that Helen was awarded a 'New Talent and Graduate Residency' at The Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol.

Having worked on projects ranging from mock-umentaries, Alternate Reality Games to Mass Public Sound Walks in her first year out of University, Helen has gone on to successfully produce immersive theatrical performances, event experience design and interactive installations for, and with, a wide range of commissioners, clients, collaborators and contributors.

It during her time at The Pervasive Media Studio that she became involved in the first Interesting Games Festival in 2008. Helen continues to promote, develop and hopefully, inspire research in the field of Pervasive Gaming. Recently speaking on the BBC Radio Four series ‘Off the Page’on the topic of ‘The Games People Play’.

Propelled by stories such as Rushdie's 'Haroon and Sea of Stories' and Borges' 'Library of Babel' Helen's work experiments with the location centric acquisition of sound and text, creating fractured narratives from the ebb and flow of human interaction. Her work has seen her travel the National Bicycle Network with a tweed-clad alien, suspend speaking bird boxes from trees and attempt to drown out the sound of Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage with Soundscapes.

The Death of Muammar Gaddafi Makes News Today, Video Game Next Tuesday

Via /Kotaku

I read the news of Gaddafi’s death in between the lines of a text message I received this morning from my friend, who told me they had cornered him at Dale Farm.

These sorts of jokes do not take long to surface and the game adaptation isn’t too far behind either.
