Join Cameron A. Granger and Kara Güt online in an artist-built Lego Fortnite playscape as they expand upon the constructed systems of power explored in Cameron A. Granger: 9999. Heat up your Sunday dinner and explore Granger and Güt’s constructed village as they discuss gaming architecture’s parallels to discriminatory urban design, modding as a mechanism of imagining beyond constraints, and defined systems of play.
