PsXXYborg is a game art exploration of the ironic cyborg theory presented by Donna Haraway in her seminal 1985 essay “A Cyborg Manifesto.”


PsXXYborg ironically represents the inherent structures of power that mediate our individual moments of collision with technocratic hierarchies. The experimental, dual-screen FMV game takes place in the back of a van, through which the host system, PsXXYborg, draws you deep into the "Mirror Land Forest", posing a series of absurdist, psychologically probing questions in order to map and situate each player’s psyche within the infinite dimensions of the digital world. Critical players are rewarded with access to an array of unique game content located "off the beaten path". PsXXYborg is a way to confirm your ultimate personal value, to replicate and upload your unique consciousness into the infinite digital "we"—to achieve immortality through the wonders of technology!

This installation is presented in the context of Printemps St-Denis, organised by the SDC rue St-Denis.
