The project explores the digital repurpose of Glasgow's Caledonia Road Church, leveraging digital platforms to revive its lost interiors after a 1960s fire. Gorbals Glitch is an illustrated proposal for a videogame that delves into collective memory of the obliterated district of the Gorbals. Players can explore interconnected digital realms via stained-glass window portals, collecting totems, mundane objects, representing shared Old Gorbals memories, and placing them on the church's altar. This virtual world blends historical and contemporary architectural elements, creating a glitch due to discrepancies between historical records and the present.
Gorbals Glitch has been developed within the context of the Glasgow School of Art.
