Talk #1Alan Kwan

Alan Kwan – Psychological Spaces in Videogame Game

Designer and Technologist

Alan Kwan is an artist and game designer whose works focus on exploring psychological spaces and memories through the mediums of experimental videogames, interactive virtual worlds, and VR installations. Most of his games are not typically fun to play. They have no rewarding mechanics and provide no particular goals for the players to achieve. Instead, his works focus on creating first-person encounters with psychological spaces that do not demand action but simply allow players to wander and to daydream. In this talk, Alan will share a few personal stories and explain their influence on his style of game-making.
