“Shifting Foundations” is a solar-punk video game that depicts an apartment overtaken by plants. The plants seem to have minds of their own as vines swing and Venus flytraps snap at the player. As the player escapes the apartment, they discover a serum that makes monstrous plants grow, which they can use to destroy walls. The combination of industrialism and nature that the game displays was inspired by rooftop gardens common in the Pacific Northwest. There are mountains visible through windows, art on the walls, and unique furniture. These details engage players, making them want to explore the apartment completely.


“Chamonix” is an orchestral arrangement inspired by Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, a mountain town in the French Alps. The composition is hopeful yet solemn at times, a reflection on the sweeping natural beauty of the French Alps. Crescendos and decrescendos imitate the rising and falling of mountain peaks, and as the composition becomes more complex, listeners can imagine the smaller details of the area. The different instruments converse among themselves, organically interrupting and building off of each other, like the dynamic scenery of Chamonix-Mont-Blanc.


Love, hope, humor, drama, and (most importantly) ducks. These are the themes Florian Knowles explores in “The Ballad of the Duck.” Knowles leverages a fast-paced storytelling style to create a short video full of emotion using only inanimate objects. Viewers can follow the tale of two lovers torn from each other by the will of a dastardly villain then watch as a single, dramatic tear falls down the face of a duck who has lost their true love. Finally, viewers are invited to go quackers for the thrilling, explosive conclusion to the story. “The Ballad of the Duck” promises joy, despair, and Vine-like humor in less than a minute.
