Considering the role of a server as “place,” this workshop will be a Jane’s Walk through the expansive procedurally generated world of Minecraft. Ender Gallery curators Cat Bluemke, Jonathan Carroll, and Sarah Friend will begin in an NPC village, meeting the residents and studying their built environment to consider how they are affected by the player’s interventions. The tour then moves into the biomes of the Minecraft server and examines the colonialist and extractive concepts lurking behind the game’s mechanics. The tour will expand beyond the edges of Minecraft gameplay, travelling to its farthest corners to pry into the bits and backend of the server.

The project is informed by Jane Jacob’s approach to considering spaces and the bodies that dwell within them. It is inspired by the application of this approach into digital spaces and their representations—notably, by Leonhard Müllner and Robin Klengel’s 2018 Operation Jane Walk. Minecraft Jane’s Walk will investigate Minecraft as a material artifact and social space, and its potential for artistic interventions.
