Explore the landscape of Bennett, Colo., through an interactive topographic map and exploratory video game which will be created by artist Cherish Marquez. The virtual map will feature landmarks of the town and surrounding area, and stories from community members will be embedded in the game. The design of the topographic map will be made from recycled fabric, conductive material and an interface that will allow community members to move through a digital model of the community.
