A dank enlightenment is gaming your bones. What do you do?

Vaporents is a multi-reality biome; a post-digital swampscape of bacterial gameworlds, ambient trans-architectures, genetic dreampunk fictions, labyrinthine nanobot industrial-complexes, dirty wifi, and interfaces-interfaces-interfaces-interfaces…

With the delirious logic of a lucid dream or a psychedelic vision, Vaporents explores the speculative navigational resources required of digital natives immersed in the hypercontextual virtualities of a post-continuous present. The transversal experience of negotiating the dynamic gamespaces of post-digital culture demands a user-erotics of speculation, simulation, puzzle-solving, ceaseless intuition of occult algorithms… All of which perpetually re-orient and re-calibrate the human mind and body to tempestuous techno-environmental conditions and moistmedia-ecologies. From the mannerisms of intimacy that bind and connect us, to the subsequent capacity to dream, design, and enter into projects of collective rationality through digitally altered states.

Vaporents is supported by New Media Scotland’s Alt-W Fund with investment from Creative Scotland.
