Artifacts is an art game and digital art piece that wonders about the excavation of digital pasts, the malleability of historical evidence, and questions the power of “the photograph”. It imagines digital landscapes made of pixels and sculpted by data. The art in the game is repurposed images salvaged from Geocities, iconic American photographs, and memes. It allows the player to reflect on themes of archeology, anthropology, and discovery.
