The series FF Gaiden is part of an ongoing collaboration between the artists and wider communities examining the writings of the anti-colonial thinker Frantz Fanon (1925–61). ‘Gaiden’ is a Japanese word that means ‘side story’. In the gaming world, it refers to a spin-off or secondary version of an existing game. During a residency in Norway in 2016 the artists worked closely with paperless migrants in Oslo and the organisation Mennisker i Limbo (People in Limbo), to discuss issues surrounding identity, technology and contemporary culture. These discussions, and further close collaboration, resulted in a video work that makes use of the virtual space of the computer game Grand Theft Auto V to create a complex tapestry of stories about migration, cultural history and social change.
