While researching apps for my students, I started looking for something that would enrich a unit on Optical Illusions. I found Monument Valley and instantly fell in love with it. I beat the game, downloaded the extra levels, beat those and immediately started the whole game over again.
The graphics are mesmerizing and beautiful. It is a game, but it is also a puzzle. It is living art.
I want to print the scenes from the game and hang them in my home.
Usually I mute my phone, but for this game, I had to turn on the sounds.
Playing the game transcends the human experience in the most amazing way.
After playing the game, I thought it would make a very fun art project for my students, after they study the penrose triangle and other impossible shapes, they could use them to make tiny, beautiful, colorful castles.
After completing the unit on Optical Illusions, I realized that the challenge would be too difficult for my students....but maybe someday.....
This is my 'slice of life' blog.
