Tattle-Tale Heart (2016, 17min). A dystopian portrait of blurring boundaries between body and machine, this short film is based on an app that reads heart rate through your web cam, calculates your *true* mood, and posts it directly to your feed.
Your new virtual pet..
Lark VCR and Porpentine Charity Heartscape
This video game imagines a future where a person's trauma may be ejected from their mind/body and delegated to live in a pixel-imperfect reality—as their virtual pet.
After emerging from a slime-like body fluid expelled by the player's virtual nasal cavity, the Traumagotchi's features are a reflection of the player's description of their respective trauma. In a game with no death or logical reward system, the player helps their Traumagotchi navigate an unreal landscape as they oscillate between hyper- and hypo-aroused states.
