Hivemind: In the Backend's Labyrinth

Calum Bowden, Joanna Pope, and Will Freudenheim of Berlin-based "utopian conspiracy" Trust recently launched Hivemind, a Serpentine Digital commission that explores game-world navigation as a practice of knowledge sharing. Taking the metaphor of a "backend" from computing and extending it across their research, they use games as a way of reframing work and acknowledging under-appreciated artistic labor.
