A Promising Film

An HTC Student's Thesis Film
Morgan Riles, a graduating senior majoring in film through the Honors Tutorial College, tells the story of her thesis project, “BIOMODD [ATH1]: A Living Game Computer as Social Sculpture.” Morgan shows Angelo Vermeulen’s sculpture and exhibition—a social and interactive art project that brings together ecology, game culture, and installation art—through her documentary.

The film has already taken on more significance than a traditional capstone project for Morgan’s OHIO degree. Prior to its campus showing in early June, an earlier cut of the documentary found an international audience with screenings in Belgium and France.  Morgan plans to enter the documentary in film festivals and hopes her work will reflect the excellence and opportunity offered from Ohio University’s School of Film.
