2-channel computer simulation

Dirtscraper simulates an underground structure whose ‘smart architecture’ is overseen by artificial intelligences — spatial and social designers that observe, learn, and make changes to the system. Unaware of the control exerted by these entities, residents move through spaces that reflect varied economies and class hierarchies. Periodically this system will interject one of 48 cinematic interludes that reveal different facets of life in this decaying arcology.
