Artist Statement:

I made the original game that is used in this artwork. It was a game about fighting and shooting, high intensity. I wanted to make an argument with this by adding elements that would normally be relaxing or peaceful. I picked fish, and Sonatina Op 36 No 6.

The fish replace the normal enemies, so as a player you control a space fighter ship with the job of destroying these fish. While doing this the player listens to a very relaxing and wonderfully constructed piece of music.


-Hannah Höch

I found art from the Dada movement that focused on the futility of conflict and made statements by creating satirical artworks that pointed out the issues with ongoing conflicts to be especially inspiring with the direction I took for this game.
