Girl Bites Hand
Game starts with an animated, quirky, stop-motion-like movement, nearly cartoon,
charged by sound-electricity and space tension, softened only by touch.
Hard on the outside, soft on the inside,
a duet of geometric interactions builds up a narrative between two characters,
cruel and ironic, discipline and sensual, gradually turning beasty.
Shifting from a high and cold exposure to a warm peach-red color as if lit from inside the body,
increasing temperature and speed of actions,
pausing to sculpture the moment,
temporary totems melting like sand castles,
noise at a high volume,
alertness and hunger meet the space,
holding each-other by the teeth,
desperate moves of tracking back,
reverse- skip to where we started....game ends.
