Meadley presents the third in an ongoing series of exhibitions that each take the form of a successive ‘level’ similar to that of a computer game in which the visitor becomes the player. For LEVEL 3 Spike Island Test Space will be painted to resemble a section of the multiplayer ‘Archives’ level from Goldeneye on the Nintendo 64 or the almost identical hallways observable in the BBC Storyville documentary ‘Web Junkies – China’s Addicted Teens’ situated in a rehabilitation clinic for teenagers addicted to online multiplayer games. Multiple works will then litter the space taking the form of either puzzles or hints.
