Man Bartlett's work is a mixture of traditional media, digital media, and performance, all of which emphasize the philosophical difference between perceptual knowledge and reality and how this manifests in the interaction of technology and culture. “End Game,” plots the path of consciousness through the end of history. A hypnotic and immersive dirge, “End Game” uses video, sound, sculpture, and scent to ask, “What is the transference method of our psychic energies after the destruction of our planet? Where might the remaining matter of our essence travel to when our physical home is no more?" In this light, “End Game” is both a vessel and a sarcophagus for the human spirit, traveling to an unknown and unknowable destination.
