Underworld Forest (Looking Up)
0 of 1 Editions Available
There is a way to go beneath the ground in Minecraft servers and travel beyond where people are building. When you travel in this way beyond the commonly used spaces you can see the algorithm building ahead of you as you move, making volcanic tubes and mine shafts and terrain. It is as close as you can get to seeing the birth of a metaverse, and it is always something that no person has ever seen before. Born out of a National Geographic magazine assignment to explore the far edges of virtual worlds, bringing back photographs made with virtual cameras. (filmed in MUSE Oraia)
