Parallel dimensions and haunting noise-- lower the lights, turn up the sound, and look around.

Part short film, part game, and part video installation, 8 is an artist-produced app that places you in the middle of an immersive video where physically moving your device reveals events unfolding and repeating around you. Users can navigate through a maze of 24 looping scenes by simply tapping the screen. Navigation symbols can be used to learn patterns of movement through the app but there is no real beginning or end.

Visit to download a companion booklet to 8 the app or purchase a physical copy from Social Malpractice Publishing.

Phone Destiny

You didn't know what your phone was really capable of until right after you activate -8-
So good it feels like my phone has a new purpose. This app beats back the mundane static posture of hunched over a phone consuming and instead makes adventure close enough to grasp. Can't wait for the next new now. Well played Mr. Slappe hiding behind that curtain pulling levers, well played.


Mindblowing. This is easy the coolest app ever created. Bravo!
