Stuck on a small island in Sweden, during the global Covid19 pandemic, watching the world protest the mistreatment of black lives, K was feeling helpless but inspired.
Unable to attend any protests, K decided to create images of fictional black / black coded characters for each day of June to reflect on the black representation in the media he had grown up with.
Some positive examples of black representation, some questionable.
In this talk K will share his reflections on the characters, his own ingrained biases and some ways shared biases show up in games.
