Remains of Great Importance

Remains of Great Importance is an interactive video installation inspired by the book "Le Petit Prince" by Antoine De Saint-Exupéry. The viewer interacts with the piece by using a controller to move through the digital world on the screen. As they investigate and traverse the virtual space, they will find artifacts taken from the story which enables the viewer to piece together what has happened before. This installation rewards viewers for interacting with it, creating internal dialogue as they attempt to connect the artifacts from their memory. It straddles the boundaries of what art is through the use of a videogame, which are commonly not considered to be art but mere entertainment, at the source of its creation and interaction.
