In the context of the VIA Lab program (Video Games In Art Laboratory) students from the Estonian Academy of Arts worked on the archives of a lost Estonian video game called “Punane Laine”.

An old forgotten suitcase was found in the Estonian National Archives. It was given to the LVLup! Videogame Museum hosted at the National Library. The suitcase contained sketches and other materials of an unfinished video game called “Red Wave” produced in the 1980s. The game production was halted due to its complexity and unavailable technology at the time. Fortunately several artefacts from its development were identified and are exhibited at the Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design.

Exhibition curated by August Joost, Elias Kuulmann, Elise Marie Olesk, Kail Timusk, Karlotta Lainväe, Kristjan Glück, Paul Rannik, Sandra Puusepp, Taavet Kirja, Hanna Vinter, Maria Kallau, Marten Prei, Margarita Feofanova, Andrea Lima.
