The Immigration Game

Political game about immigration

This game is part of a larger art project that is only found in game cafés (see website). The tiles for the The Immigration Game are all based on true stories collected from my personal experience as an immigrant, books, Internet blogs, and interviews conducted with friends, family members and neighbors about their immigration experience to the US. Research on how to share this experience is still on-going. The goal is to educate native born Americans about issues surrounding the process of immigration and the life of immigrants, especially cultural and identity issues that are often not spoken about in the news.
