A crowd simulation software serves as a tool for exploring football supporters’ collective memory. The images of crowd simulation are faced with testimonies from Liverpool Football Club’s supporters who recall their experience marked by a tragic event: the Hillsborough stadium disaster, in 1989, which changed the nature of the game of football. The stadium being a microcosm for society, its evolution relates to broader social changes that happened over the last thirty years.

Nicolas Gourault

Nicolas Gourault (born 1991) is a french artist and filmmaker trained in contemporary art schools such as Le Fresnoy, Studio national des arts contemporains, but also in visual studies at Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales. His work is imbued with this double training and aims at creating bridges between visual techniques and political concern by means of a documentary critique of new media. He is particularly interested in how simulation technologies transform modes of representation and control spaces in order to prevent unwanted events.
