The third exhibition of the shining project* is inspired by the concept of a legandary artifact. The term appears in the online game Dwarf Fortress, where it is an important part of the plot.
The game of 2006 provides by content and formally in its rudimentary surface some interesting starting points for the artistic debate and opened the shining-issue another substantive perspective. The player in this game is ruled a nation of dwarfs, some of wich are produce so-called “legendary artifacts“. These artifacts are hand-made objects, such as shovels, vases or chairs, that are robbed their original function to symbolically charged cult objects in the game. Each dwarf can produce such a legandary artifact only once in his life. Visually the game takes place on a very abstract graphical interface, wich will arise the pictures in the mind of the player and despicts the events only schematically.
