Description

SpekWork is a studio exploring new political narratives through game design.

History

Early history

SpekWork emerged from the collaborative team of Cat Bluemke, Ben McCarthy, and Jonathan Carroll. They had worked together in the Toronto-based new media performance collective Tough Guy Mountain, which Jonathan had co-founded in 2012. Carrying over many of the experimental, performative elements of Tough Guy Mountain, SpekWork focuses on developing interactive software and its implications on contemporary labour conditions.

After that

SpekWork develops games as immersive critical commentary, taking fundamental research in perception to be the foundation of emergent ideology. Their work has been exhibited internationally at venues such as at venues such as Kunsternes Hus (Norway), the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale, and the Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago).
