The concept of the hive mind is presented in a five person virtual reality sculpture. Playing together in a simple game of capture the flag, viewer movement is restricted. The focal points of the virtual experience in tandem with the confines of the physical object work together to choreograph participant behavior to predictably step side to side. Each headset is separated by a set of bellows such that when participants step closer to one another it compresses the air within.
