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 only one Pacman. This video game is normaly for a single player. The players share together the same controller like if they put all their hands on the same joypad to play.
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 game or obtain an high score? Eggregor8 raises the question: Are we always stronger together or even more undecided and therefore much less effective ?
