The Associate Assistant of Departmental Operation is a 3D virtual office environment that runs on a game engine with an office worker inside named Steve.
The player can control Steve with a real Voodoo Doll and insert the pin into the doll to witness the effect on the screen.
The installation investigates the dual relationship – the controller and the controlled – the epitome of urban office envirovment. It puts into usable terms the odd feeling that one might have when working for a large corporation that they are unsure of how decisions are made and why they do what they do day in and day out.
