Shortlisted for an interactive arts BAFTA, Desert Rain is a pioneering mix of virtual environment, performance and installation. Six players head out together into a world of virtual motels, corridors filled with tonnes of sand and unexpected interactions to find their targets.

This package includes a book that combines features on the project from computer scientists, ethnographers, critics, theorists and the artists themselves, alongside a DVD documenting the work. The DVD includes video interviews with a soldier, a journalist, a peace worker, a tourist, an actor and an observer of the Gulf War.
