The Shooting Galler(y) Thesis developed the contrast between digital interface and antique carnival games with the idea that these could combine to form a new game, interaction, experience. Ebay images of the carnival games were collected and reset based on original sketches provided as research.
The project illustrates the value of a game as a whole, not merely its parts and demonstrates that a digital interface can reanimate historic images. Using the original sketches as a guides, synthesized and genuine sounds, lighting, and replica guns as game components, the project effectively explores the contrasts of past and present experiences.
