Ten Lands is a hybrid content between videogame and videoclip, created to go with the first ambiant album of Yatoni. It features ten distinct worlds, each matching a song from the album. Play as a lonely knight and wander through the remains of giant battles, ruins of abandoned castles and deserts of fire and ice. Find your way to a lovecraftian creature, hiding beyond the foggy sea. Discover a new way to experience an album during pandemic times. Take your time. Look and listen.
Mélanie Courtinat is a French artist based between Paris and Lausanne. Within her practice, she creates speculative worlds and environments using digital mediums such as virtual and augmented reality, 3D and video games. She tends to think above all about the position of the viewer in front of and at the heart of an immersive work, with an approach based on sensations and emotion. Her work focuses on issues revolving around gameplay and interaction mechanisms, what they imply, what they mean, and their consequences. Her work has been exhibited in very different contexts, from film or video games festivals to contemporary art galleries, from Tokyo to San Francisco.
