IMAGINING VISION – RITES: interactive installation


Exploration game based on amateur YouTube videos

Rites is a first person exploration game in which the user gets to explore a dreamlike world based on amateur YouTube videos. Interacting with Rites, these videos represent our collective memory.


The digital landscape of Rites is built up of recontextualised elements of videos, where new connections are established between the consisting parts. Immersed in this virtual environment, the user becomes the protagonist of these transformed situations where space is generated around the player, they player’s interactions change the progress of the game, choosing from the elements of his environment the user can build up his own totem of recollection.

As opposed to most games, in Rites’ universe, there are no definite goals to achieve or specific storylines. Focusing on discovery instead, it allows all sorts of ways of exploration from active interaction to contemplation.
