Benjamin Cheah is a final year student pursuing a BFA in Interactive Media at the School of Art, Design and Media at Nanyang Technological University. His work explores the formal and expressive properties of game, video and other new media. He seeks to push the boundaries of the game medium and explore its applications outside of its conventional role as entertainment.
“My thesis project, “The Wake”, is a conceptual game with a stream-of-consciousness style of narrative. It follows a man and his thoughts as he passes through a series of surreal and fragmented cityscapes. The player is invited to explore the character’s thoughts and reflect likewise –– Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? The soundtrack and audio are produced by SAE Institute student, Lim Mei Yin.”
Benjamin’s project will be showcased at the NTU ADM Show this Friday, 27 April, 6:30pm—10:30pm at Old School.
