People of the Oak

One of the pieces of work I enjoyed most at UNSW was what ended up being ‘People of the Oak‘. Our challenge was to create a new media work. Given the daunting challenge of actual artistic production, I wanted to try something more existential. In the end I created a ‘virtual religion’ – a belief system within the Ultima Online world. The paper then presented key tenets of the religion as the core text and used extensive footnoting to provide rationale. I don’t know what others thought of it, but I had a lot of fun.
