LIFE GAME | eulogies2022
Cutting-edge conservation research blends with art and design. Working in collaboration with Professor David Edwards and his team at the University of Sheffield Department of Biosciences, Paul Evans has co-created two emotive, contrasting responses to mass extinction. Developed with filmmaker Jon Harrison, ‘Eulogies’ is a series of emotional film shorts featuring five ‘future funeral orations’ for endangered species, written and performed by conservation scientists from Professor Edwards’ research group. LIFE_GAME is an engaging, playable artwork involving participants in a high stakes contest to save life on Earth.
A commission for Festival of the Mind ’22, LIFE_GAME featured in Futurecade at Millennium Gallery, Sheffield from 15th – 25th September 2022.
