Let’s Play. Lawrence Lek: 2065
19:00–20:00 at Garage Screen
A series of Game Club events organized as part of the exhibition The Coming World: Ecology as the New Politics 2030–2100 will launch with a Let’s Play session by one of the exhibition participants, artist Lawrence Lek, who will play his own video game 2065.


Lawrence Lek works with virtual reality and simulation using software for video games and 3D animation in combination with installation and performance. The majority of his creations are independent virtual worlds where fictional events unfold in real locations.

The game 2065 places selected territories of Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Hong Kong on a virtual island manifesting the materialized world of the future. By 2065, artificial intelligence had acquired independence and alarming power. All work is conducted by algorithms, while people, lost in between physical and virtual realities, spend days playing video games.

During the Let’s Play session, the artist will demonstrate how to work on the verge of the virtual and the real by traveling through various architectural spaces in the open universe of the game 2065, and explain, using his own playlist, how digital technologies and AI impact our perception of reality and transform it.

Lawrence Lek

A multimedia artist, film director, and musician. He studied architecture at Trinity College Cambridge. He is the creator of the films Sinofuturism, Geomant, and AIDOL and the video games and simulations 2065, Europa, Mon Amour, Unreal Estate, and Nøtel. He lives and works in London.
