ESCAPING ROUTE, 2020

These video arts symbolically recreate the game established by the mining company Vale in the city of Macacos, which is under threat of B3 and B4 dams' rupture. When the siren rings, the population has seven minutes to evacuate. The player needs to get his “meal tickets” to come to life, and decide between leaving the city (and the game) or ending this perverse game by the mining company, simultaneously stopping Vale's train and silencing the company's president, who presents himself as the game boss.
