Nil:Nil is a portrait of play in pandemic times. As our work and play move online, our human interactions become subject to a comprehensive enframing.

While technology facilitates our personal connections, granting us access to each other’s faces and voices, it also creates subtle “rules” of engagement. These rules frequently have the effect of flattening the emotional, imaginative, and practical possibilities of our interactions.

Furthermore, technology alters the terms of the most basic rule – who can play — as the same privileges are not afforded to everyone equally.

In Nil:Nil, technology allows the game to go on, overcoming lockdowns and closures, and also ensures that the result is never in doubt.
