FLAT is an immersive installation taking the form of an ‘escape room’ game. Players of the game are locked inside the installation and have to interact with the artwork to solve cryptic puzzles in order to escape the room. Players have one hour to escape.
FLAT is about an engineer and his relationship to the house that he built, which is also designed to eat humans. FLAT is a satirical reflection of the eco-chique bourgeois image of micro-apartments and minimalist living.
