Dan Hett’s The Loss Levels is one of four works selected to appear at Lighthouse as part of the Sheffield Doc/Fest Alternate Realities tour during Brighton Digital Festival. Join us on Tuesday 18 September to hear Dan speaking about the work with the Sheffield Doc/Fest team.
The Loss Levels is a deeply personal yet playful collection of fifteen experimental narrative arcade games that narrate the artist’s experience in 2017 when he lost his brother in the Manchester Arena terror attack.
Dan Hett is a BAFTA-winning multidisciplinary digital artist and creative technologist from Manchester. After a decade spent making big colourful things with technology for the likes of BBC Children's, BBC R&D and Havas, he now operates as a freelance creative tech gun-for-hire. Hett also maintains his own independent digital arts practice, and is currently one of the selected artists on FutureEverything's cutting-edge FAULT LINES program. His work centres around a stubborn refusal to do as he's told with technology, preferring to do the coding equivalent of painting with bold brush strokes on large canvases, leaving the boring bits to grumpy programmers who have to wear ties to work.
