What is Aura about?
In 2036, you are a new recruit at the internal investigations department at ZeeWell Corporation, sent to Dr. Theo Aphasian’s laboratory after a mysterious incident involving his work has left thousands dead or insane. People affected were within a mile of ZeeWell labs, and the epicenter is Theo's laboratory.
Exploring the lab, you are tasked with finding whatever you can to determine the cause of the disaster, and discover the series of events that led to its triggering. A complex puzzle reveals itself, shedding light onto Aphasian's personal life, the real goals behind his work, the other parties with stakes in the technology and the suspicious role of the ZeeWell Corporation.
Aura was exhibited in the MFA Visual Narrative’s show “And Then…” in Summer 2017
