HOTEL

Biography 

Born in 1981 in Saint Etienne, graduated from the Arts Déco in Strasbourg du Fresnoy, Benjamin Nuel sails since his beginnings between traditional cinema and the art of video games. His work HOTEL has been programmed in about fifty different events in several countries. He has since realized another video game The Reversal. After two short fiction films, he is currently finishing a virtual reality film.

Artistic project : HOTEL

Peace reigns between Terrorists and Policemen, escapees from a video game who find themselves secluded in a strange hotel. Useless for the first time, they fight against boredom while the world around them slowly crumbles, as if sucked up by some lethal force: the Void. Could this fate give them the chance to become something other than mere clones ?

Benjamin Nuel originally designed HOTEL as a series of ten episodes published in the fall of 2012 on the Web and accompanied by a virtual world to explore. It is proposed here a continuous version, restoring the experience of an absurd world, a subtle reflection on the war and the video game, where the characters seem to awaken to a certain consciousness.
