Reactivation is a site specific videogame installation designed by Quinn Stephens, incorporating work from Soha Kareem and featuring music by Liz Ryerson. Modeled after point and click adventure games like MYST, Reinvention asks us about our obsession with purity in a world that falls apart as you interact with it.
