 “You’ve crashed on an alien planet.” This version of WE BUILD WORLDS created an exterior/interior narrative space. On the outside, visitors become the protagonists of the  No Man’s Sky  videogame narrative.  No Man’s Sky  begins when a player crash lands onto an alien world…we position the gallery visitors as that player. The exterior installation prepares them for their planetary journey on the inside of the installation.
