Through the reinterpretation of videogame interactions and objects into physical spaces, sculptor Krista Hoefle is interested in revealing underlying or hidden aspects of game structure that are otherwise not apparent during regular game play. The exhibition LVL_GRNDR theorizes a new game environment through a series of prints, sculptures, and video--one that is impossible to win. LVL_GRNDR explores a variety of different game styles in the process: a 350-room D&D-style RPG map & module (Dungeons & Dragons Role-Playing Game), an endlessly scrolling 8bit landscape, a pc (or "player character") that refuses to l2p (or "learn to play"), to name a few.
