Memory Game

In this game players match pairs of cards by remembering where they are when laid face down in a grid. There are two very distinct types of images on the cards: One is 'animal selfies' in which rare and exotic non-human species are carelessly used as photographic props to boost the human subjects' profiles. The practice is widely condemned by wildlife charities as being detrimental to wildlife. The second type of images are detailed close ups of fungi, moss and lichen taken by unseen enthusiasts who are clearly in awe of these mini wonders. The photographers are absent from the pictures, but evidentally fully present for the moment. 

By contrasting the two opposing modes of co-existence, the game challenges norms around human/non-human relationships.
