BERTIE BRAIN explores how digital spaces can be inhabited not only by video games, but by experimental digital practices that pave the way for alternative narratives and stories. Responding to the demands of new technologies and how they contribute to society, this workshop examines how objects, landscapes, environments and theatrical bodies can be rethought in virtual space. While experiencing the sensation of inhabiting a virtual reality space, we question the role of digital games in imagining the future and debate how algorithms trigger negative emotions such as fear, paranoia, aggression and tribalism.
