THE MYTHOSPHERE

This group project was developed at the end of the first term on the MA Design for Interactive Media Degree Course at the Centre for Electronic Arts, Middlesex University. The Degree was the first of its type in the UK, although the Centre for Electronic Arts had been the leading institution for digital art and technology since the 1970s. T

 

he Mythosphere was based upon bringing to life the work of Joseph Campbell, the world’s foremost authority on comparative mythology. The Mythosphere allows users to interact with mythic stories which link to comparative myths from different times and cultures. Despite the limitations of the technology at the time, The Mythosphere is a rich vibrant project that aims to bring to life, “The song of the universe, the music of the spheres”.
