Walking Simulator started as a series of photographs that were heavily inspired by the common video game glitch that occurs when there is no skybox present; The sky turns into an ever-repeating pattern of what is visible. I utilized Photoshop’s Content Aware Fill tool to visually recreate this effect. I then returned these photographs to virtual space (and incorporated the glitch which started the whole project) through my own game, which can be downloaded from its itch.io page. (Note: Game may not run on Macintosh computers updated to OS X Catalina 10.15.)


“Primarily they capture the cold and rugged textures of Alaska’s mountains, but the photos also add a border that implies an endlessness, as if the world were nothing but fallen snow and hard geology." - Chris Preistman
