A contemplative experience
monad is an audio-visual contemplation, meant to be experienced in a dark, quiet room with headphones.
Create circular art with a generative soundscape. Go somewhere else for a while...
monad was initially conceived as an experiment with space, wherein at the very moment that the player engaged with the system, a white circle began to grow, unrestrained, until it occupied the entire screen, the entire space. Leaving no room for agency.
The black circle came about as a means for the player to regain space. The soundscape came about in order to give more dimension to the feelings that the visuals were already evoking.
monad is made with LÖVE, with help and support from that community as well as Louisville Makes Games.
