I’ve heard quite a lot about North, Kate Bergdorf’s latest sim/art/installation. In fact all the real cool blogger kidz already did their reports and made their fantastically cool and artful photos and everything. So clever editrix Orca thought sent the useless reporter Orca out to North to snoop around there for a bit. Let’s see what that girl came up with, shall we?
Here’s what Kate wrote in her notecard:
Inspired by the raw and serene Scandinavian and Scottish northern landscapes, nature, fauna, ocean, vast empty spaces, and decrepit old buildings come together to make up the outside part of North. I intentionally opposed the rugged sim exterior with softer, more playful and cluttered interior spaces in order to create a contrast. I hope you will be as inspired when visiting North as I was when putting it together.
