The Decay of Meaning


Installation view


2011 / game developed in Lua/Love2d / part of "Words: A users manual" at Exhibit 230 (Lado Sarai, New Delhi) curated by Himali Singh Soin.


A game-world in which the instrumental analysis of meaning and value in vocabulary becomes an obsession. You can jump and eat words, depending on which word you eat, you speed becomes faster or slower. When the player collides with its other avatar, one of them dies (who is faster?). But then there are three lives. If you eat a lot of words, sometimes there are side-effects.
