House of the Rising Sun
“We are never real historians, but always near poets, and our emotion is perhaps nothing but an expression of a poetry that was lost.”
- Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space
House of the Rising Sun is an interactive self-portrait about the phenomenology of heartbreak, presented as a choose-your-own-adventure game. Exploring the interconnection between physical architecture and emotional architecture, House of the Rising Sun investigates how the home becomes a living extension of memory, intimate relationships, and the human body.
