January 2006 edition- first published 15 April 1999.
to my MA Design and Media Arts student web site. I studied this masters
degree course at the University
of Westminster, UK, between 1998-1999. This course has now been revised
as the MA Art and Media Practice degree. Visit their web site for details.
my course work, I designed and produced three unique interactive media
projects for CD-ROM. In addition, there was also a student web site, (of
which, this is a revised and updated form), which gave teasers and samples
of the CD-ROM work.
terms of content of this student work, I was hoping to communicate a theme
of satire. At the time, this theme was only evident in only one commercial
computer game, Star Ship Titanic (1998).
three original interactive CD-ROM student projects that I worked for my
MA degree on are discussed in detail, below.
My first student project was an interactive multimedia CD-ROM presentation.
Fairground 2000 was a satire of The Millennium Experience
exhibition in London, UK.
For further details on this project read Fairground
2000: Rationale and Production.
second student project was a computer game. Kamikaze
Kitten was influenced by the 1980s video arcade game Frogger.
For further details read Kamikaze Kitten: Rationale
third student project
was an experimental interactive media piece. Higgledy
Piggledy is work which was incomplete.
