Most Dismal Swamp is a mixed-reality biome; a place and a practice where a dank miasma of fictions, artists, model worlds, adversarial realisms, external hard drives, camera-tracking data, campfires, opaque rituals, game engines, amateur heresies, visual effects plug-ins, and other animals come together. A Multi-User Shared Hallucination dredged from the swamp of our contemporary mixed-reality system.

Emerging from the curation, artwork, and research of Dane Sutherland, Most Dismal Swamp’s multimedia projects involve collaboration, commissioning, and convivial speculation with many other artists. These projects are modular and densely populated film projects that continue to explore the integration of human sensoria and digital technologies. Projects have been presented across various immersive and bespoke installations, and online.
