byobob is a multiple choice game where players move around by selecting how they would like the person, or sim, to spend their day.

Computer generated images and gifs, alongside real-life documentation of immediate surroundings create collaged fragments of daily routines.

Players sink into rabbit holes of the banality of being; from travelling through pipes to grab a glass of water and riding the pet cat as if she were a horse, to mindless scrolling on a phone to find shark videos.

The blurring of real-life and simulated life encourages players to explore their own spaces and how mundanity drips into self made mythologies of us and our surroundings; to question the limits between domestic and fantasy. Living within and in-between gaps of the familiar and imagined, the works asks what do gaps generate in us, and what do we generate in gaps?
