FLAT
August 18–September 10, 2017
A collaborative project by Alison Cooley, Ivana Dizdar, Alvin Luong, and Andrew Savery-Whiteway

Bunker 2
346 Campbell Ave
Toronto, ON M6P 3V9

FLAT is an immersive installation that also operates as an escape room game. Participants interact with the space and work together to solve a series of challenges over the course of an hour-long game in order to escape the gallery. Based on the structure and tropes of the escape room game phenomenon, FLAT is a game conceptualized, designed, and built by artists.

Exploring the aspirations and limitations of the micro- and minimalist-living movements, FLAT responds to Bunker 2’s form as a repurposed shipping container. The game investigates histories of small-space living—from modernist design movements to the tiny home trend to the precarity of improvised living spaces built by those pushed out by gentrification.
