Sleepwalk - commissioned by Onassis Foundation and Queens Museum


Sleepwalk is a solitary adventure game in which you find yourself confined to your apartment in New York City under quarantine. Information about the outside world comes to you through the news, and sometimes filters in through your window. As the days pass, you start to wonder whether this is all a dream.

Sleepwalk was built in 120 hours in Spring 2020, during which time the artist was living and working in her apartment under COVID-19 self-isolation orders by the State of New York. The game is the artist’s response to a prompt from the Onassis ENTER program.
