Presentation Title:

  • Night Walks Through Asynchronously-Networked Space



  • Night Walks is a series of distinct software objects connected to one another asynchronously through a private server. The intent is that these objects function together to form one videogame, distributed throughout multiple players and play sessions. This talk will discuss the benefits and challenges of using this as a form of artistic process. The author will discuss the creation of different software objects that commu- nicate with one another indirectly and interpret one-another’s communications abstractly. It will demonstrate how this leads to an iterative and expansive creative process, with novel forms of inspiration and constraint.
