In this work, four people will be connected in virtual space and asked to become a “hive mind” by trying to synchronise their personal bio-signals to collectively control the virtual world they inhabit.

Using biosensors connected to each participant, the raw data is used to build and modify a shared, virtual world – literally a world made from data.
Participants must collaborate by learning to control their bodies to sustain the world and stop it from disintegrating.

Developed as part of Melbourne Knowledge Week 2016.
