Consisting of fourteen virtual worlds, the SPUR.WORLD online exhibition represents the subconscious domain of the resident artists’ custom avatars. Working within themes and representations of mysticism, ritual, and the natural world, the collective utilises game engine technology to form complex yet cohesive narratives.
Please use the following commands when navigating the worlds:
W/A/S/D to move – Mouse to look – SPACE to jump – Click anywhere to close
Developed in Unity, a cross-platform 3D game engine, each world is constructed as a three-dimensional interactive environment. Building from traditional methods of Live Action Role Play (Larp) and Real Game Play (RGP) the exhibition unfolds as the viewer moves through its varied realms. A series of hybrid worlds layered with audio, text, and video works SPUR.WORLD envelopes its viewer within a series of artist-generated landscapes, fueling the instinctual desire for escapism, play, and a brief moment outside of our physical selves.
