For my final, I wanted to create a sculptural piece based off of a video game. The game is a first person horror themed game where the line between fantasy and reality is blurred called “Outlast 2.” You play as the main character, Blake, where he and his pregnant wife are now stranded in a town where half the people are wrong-minded Christians who want to kill her and the baby because they believe it is the “anti-christ” while the other half of the people are satanists that want the baby to be born.
Throughout the game, you’re playing through the town but you will randomly go to a “memory” world which is memories and backstory about the main character Blake about events that happened to him in school which are also not very pleasant. In order to represent the two plot lines that you play in the game I chose to make it a sculptural piece so that you could walk around the piece seeing one side that was the town and the other side that was the school. I also printed out a bunch of letters/written pieces that you find in the game while playing through the story to use as a base for the sculpture.
