Eloïse Bonneviot lives and works in Berlin & Amsterdam. She is looking at obsessive relationship with objects and how they trigger protocols, mechanisms of behaviours and rituals. Particularly, how does this connection unfold in a time of ecological and political crisis. She tailors public moments to enact those protocols by using the audience in the works.

Troll Swamp is a large-scale board game for multiple players, based on the formats and characters from the popular tabletop game Dungeons and Dragons. The game has been developed and tested with various groups in Bergen, and utilises role-play and teamwork in order to act out scenarios against online trolling. Through the analogue nature of the game, a playful situation emerges where one plays an imaginary character. Guided by the Dungeon Master (a storyteller guiding the players through the game), each player will face their own online habits as well as their relationship with others. Troll Swamp has the potential to enable its players to regain confidence, rethink dynamics of interaction and reclaim a different space of expression online.
