An eggregore is a concept of a combined spirit, an autonomous entity or force produced and influenced by the desires and emotions of people united in a common goal.
The art installation « Eggregor8 » is a device where 8 players all try to control one Pacman. This video game is normaly for a single player. The players share share together the same controller like if they put all their hands on the same lever to control a plane.
Is there a perfect player? What happens when you combine the desire and reflex of several players into a video game? Can we get a guarantee to finish the more difficult game? « Eggregor8 » raises the question: Are we always stronger together or even more undecided and therefore much less effective ?
