Ministry of Provenance (2013)
Working with the Nottingham-based artists group Urban Angel, the game The Apocalypse of the Ministry of Provenance mixes theatre, art, gaming and research for players to untangle events in a complex mystery thriller, based on the activities of a sinister government organisation, by understanding the history of ownership and modifications of objects.
The game involves players answering questions and completing tasks relating to the digital provenance of objects. These decisions will then be used to assess how people process information and how important provenance — the origin of information — is in decision-making.
In collaboration with Urban Angel and the University of Southampton.
