MUSH (Multi-User Shared Hallucination)

MIRA Festival – Barcelona

I contributed to the collaborative Most Dismal Swamp Project through building a virtual environment and through some elements of my previous Exudater project.

MUSH (Multi-User Shared Hallucination) is a term derived from the field of online text-based role-playing games. It refers to the communal investment in and social codification of a shared gamespace. In that sense, “MUSH” explores the emerging long-tail of community-building, or ‘gangcrafting’. The work explores the arcane and encrypted cultures that flourished among the recesses of an online megalopolis and reinforced by offline organisation and social balkanization.
