Worlding Raga: 2 - What is a World?

Hi, I'm Ian Cheng. I'm an artist. Over the last six years, I've been creating a series of simulations that explore an agent's capacity to deal with an ever-changing environment. These works culminated in the Emissaries trilogy, which introduced a narrative agent - the emissary - whose motivation to enact a story was set into conflict with the open-ended chaos of a simulation.
