Time-based and Interactive Media Arts

Quarinsane, a portmanteau of quarantine and insane, is an interactive visual novel that deals with the subconscious side of the quarantine in the pandemic. In the form of a first person game developed in Unity, it asks questions like: What happens to us when we shut ourselves in? What happens when we lose closeness to others, when closeness means contagion? How do we not lose the footing in the balancing act between a safe distance and warmth-giving closeness?
