FLAT is an immersive installation that also operates as an escape room game. Participants interact with the space and work together to solve a series of challenges over the course of an hour-long game in order to escape the gallery. Based on the structure and tropes of the escape room game phenomenon, FLAT is a game conceptualized, designed, and built by artists.

Exploring the aspirations and limitations of the micro- and minimalist-living movements, FLAT responds to Bunker 2’s form as a repurposed shipping container. The game investigates histories of small-space living—from modernist design movements to the tiny home trend to the precarity of improvised living spaces built by those pushed out by gentrification.

FLAT is a collaborative project by Alison Cooley, Ivana Dizdar, Alvin Luong, and Andrew Savery-Whiteway.

ACCESSIBILITY INFO
Bunker 2 is a small space at ground level, inside a converted shipping container. There is ramp access (up several inches) into the gallery. The gallery door is 30" wide.Because of the nature of the game, interaction with the environment may involve actions including pulling, lifting, crawling, movement through a small space, the use of electronic equipment, rearranging of furniture, and use of locking mechanisms. These actions may not be comfortable for all players and we encourage teamwork and communication between players about their needs and abilities. Please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected] with any questions you may have.

This project is generously supported by the Ontario Arts Council and City of Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council.
