Lawra Suits Clark (MFA ’14) is a video-games artist, designer, and educator living in New York, a co-founder of Babycastles Gallery, and a recent addition to Game Center faculty as Visiting Assistant Arts Professor. Primarily a solo developer, Lawra’s work has been nominated for, or won, several awards and accolades at festivals in San Francisco, Zurich, Seoul, Berlin, and many other places across the globe. This talk will cover their current work-in-progress, Faith Companion, a game of time-traveling dogs and wage workers in a company-town struggling to be noticed. Lawra will go into the design, themes, ethos, and structure of the project, where it came from and where it is going. As a collection of numerous small experiences, Faith Companion offers a strange and funny allegorical fantasy of labor alienation, end-of-life, debt, magical thinking, and the failures of tech utopianism.
