Avishay Orpaz: “ASTROGUN is an Asteroid shooting game. The player stands and has to shoot Asteroids that are coming towards him from any direction, before they hit him. A RADAR-like view helps the player locate the asteroids.”

Exhibit: Data Rush

Apon Palanuwech: “Data Rush is an interactive kinetic sculpture that reflects the past, the present, and the future of our data over the internet. Specifically, it alludes to how Silicon Valley now monopolizes and leverages user information.”
