CYMN is an interactive art installation that re-imagines "Simon," the popular 1980s tabletop game. The artist expands the original playing environment using touch screens placed around an environment. The player must memorize the pattern related by these screens and touch each in the same sequence. The length of the sequence increases as the game progresses.
The installation is composed of three touch screen monitors mounted to stainless steel stands. The touch instruments are synched to a custom application designed by the artist that recalls the game play of the original "Simon" with contemporary and aesthetically stimulating visuals.
"CYMN is an artistic tribute to an icon in the history of electronic gaming, reinventing the spirit of the game by introducing it to the context of contemporary art. With CYMN, I am transforming popular play into Art," says Roseborough.
