A Mass Memory Game

     In the image and media saturated society of today, “I” am the safe distant spectator looking at all the miseries from a God point of view. “I” have the power to turn the cards over and back. “I” am the one in charge to make these explosions happen, as in charge as the people who bombarded these spots. We both gaze and do have the remote control. “I” am the “player”.

          “A Mass Memory Game” is a memory card game consists of 100 diverse explosion images/cards – images collected and archived from News websites in about one year-. The main objective of this “world famous classic” card game is to collect matching pairs within a short period of time. However, since none of the images are identical (although they look very alike), this game happens to be an endless loop.
