Walking the Face of my Dead Grandfather

Walking the Face of my Dead Grandfather is an explorable memoryscape: a virtual landscape sculpted from data and memory. In it, the player wanders an empty environment that slowly fills with plants, objects, and vignettes that offer a portrait of a place, a person, and a life.
