No Quarter 2023 Cohort
Blake Andrews is a game designer, illustrator, animator, adjunct instructor, and “sound guy” living in Brooklyn, New York. Blake has published hundreds of short experimental web games since 2013 on websites like itch.io and Glorious Trainwrecks. Primarily, Blake has posted under the aliases snakesandrews, everythingstaken, Pumpkin Clowning, April Ghoul, and Yoke Mart.
Ben Blatt is a full-time writer and part-time arcade artist living in Brooklyn, NY. His work focuses on electro-mechanical machines which have an aesthetic inspired by American roadside attractions. Ben’s largest work was creating Tile World, the largest faux-delft arcade ever built, with his design partner Sam Richman
Everest Pipkin is a game developer, writer, and artist who lives and works on a sheep farm in southern New Mexico. Their work both in the studio and in the garden follows themes of ecology, tool making, and collective care during collapse.
You+Pea is the architectural design studio of Sandra Youkhana and Luke Caspar Pearson. Their work explores the integration of videogame technologies into architectural design, leading conversations on how games can engage new participants in the design of spaces. They work with cultural and educational institutions, industry partners, developers, and city planners to bridge the gap between multiple disciplines and provoke new conversations about the future of architectural design through the use of games. Sandra and Luke are Associate Professors at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL in London, teaching the Cinematic and Videogame Architecture programme. Their research into games as architectural spaces can be seen in their recent publication, ‘Videogame Atlas: Mapping Interactive Worlds’.
