“The Plastic Garden”


IP removed screen interfaces and characters that appear in a game called “CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS,” to convert the game into two individual machinima type works. “The Plastic Garden” is an unpopulated city that was built as a nuclear testing site in America in the cold war era. Nothing seems to be happening in the quiet scenes of these buildings that are only “inhabited” by dummies, but they are in fact parts of sceneries that are uninhabitable by humans, seemingly observed from the dispassionate viewpoint of a camera as a nameless machine.
