ABOUT MARCUS

Docile and Desiring (04/04/22) – the work I have created for exhibition is a form of self -reflection. The work is essentially about being docile in video gaming, letting the creator or maker be in control of the media, which was typical of earlier (retro) gaming culture. It adopts the ‘loop of start – crash – repeat’ cycle, simply formatted to 8-bit. In a technical sense, I have used animating software which gives movement to objects and scenery as loop animations accompanied by chiptune music which I created. The work is designed in a 800 x 350 format ratio. This simulates the small screens and green colour format of green used in classic handheld video games.
