Medication Meditation

Medication Meditation

THIS PROJECT IS PART OF THE RE:BUILDING RESILIENCE EXHIBITION.

Creator: Kara Stone

Medication Meditation is a single player game about the daily experience of living with mental illness. This game demonstrates the effort put into maintaining wellbeing and the mundane aspects of mental illness we often overlook. Anatomical, flesh coloured pixel art brings the player into a game-y feel and lets them focus on their somatic experience in this unwinnable game.

Kara Stone is an artist and scholar interested in the affective and gendered experiences of psychosocial disability, debility and healing as it relates to art production, particularly video games. Her artwork has been featured in The Atlantic, Wired and Vice. She is a member of the Different Games Collective. She is currently a PhD student in Film and Digital Media with a designated emphasis in Feminist Studies at University of California at Santa Cruz.
