Conspire: Conjoining the Virtual is a participatory artwork that incorporates virtual reality within sculptural form. The work interrogates individual subjectivity within collective decision making as five people interact through a sculptural object each directing their own virtual reality experience. Inspired by the manipulative nature and allure of virtual reality as well as the persuasive rhetoric of game mechanics, the participants play a hybrid game between tetherball and wrapping a maypole.
