Humanitron, a fictional video game from the 80’s

(from the series, things that might have made us more empathetic), 2019
The series of objects and installations hypothesize social interventions that might have transformed culture. This piece combines a low tech video game HUMANITRON. Players earn points by helping people in the desert. Below the video display is a reprint of a 1986 New York Times article reporting the federal trial of humanitarian workers in Tucson, a handbook of “American History” with a tabbed page on “labor and immigration” and two popular board games. The Last Supper holographic clock keeps current time just to the right of the living room scene.
