Redshifts and Portalmetal – micha cárdenas


Redshift & Portalmetal is a game, showing how climate change forces us to travel to space and build new homes and families. The game asks how we should settle in such new territories if we still have to make up for the past colonization. Through the eyes of a racialized trans woman called Roja we experience migration and adaptation to new surroundings. micha cárdenas has designed the interaction, text, and movement, as well as coordinated filming for the game in Los Angeles and Toronto. The project is built with HTML5 video, CSS, and Javascript.

The work is curated by Ida Schyum.
