Rather than tackling the issue of poverty through the use of uncomfortable imagery, I decided to reflect the issue in a different way.
I created a smart phone appliction that allows the user to grow and develope a virtual village. Through fun tasks and goals the user gradually helps to maintain and create a village that is self sufficient. It educates the user on what is vital in order to have a sustainable quality of life. The items that are bought through for your vitual village gets sent to real developing villages in Africa. Virtual gaming with real life affects.
