Synopsis

A video game for playing as long as you can remember what LEFT and RIGHT is.

 

☜☞ is a project that consisted of two distinct but related parts: a video game and a database.  

 

The core of the project is a memory game that challenges the player’s sense of LEFT and RIGHT spatially, semantically and ideologically, as well as the capricious nature of our short-term memory. 

The second part of the project is a database, consisting of over a hundred keywords related to the so-called left and right political spectrum, that functions as a public polling system.
