Mohamed Chamas

Mohamed Chamas is an artist, independent game developer and poet based in Naarm (melbourne). Mohamed’s work holds spiritual and mystic practices in both friction and synergy to emerging technological phenomena. The entanglements that emerge are framed by religious and occult studies, language, ludology, gamification, and the military-entertainment complex. Mohamed’s illusory workings emerge as image, sound, writing, utterance, interaction, virtual reality (VR), artgames, installation, performance, and often as hybrid forms of these mediums. Mohamed’s location-based VR altars are intended for the healing of orientalised (and otherwise marked) bodies, including ,’سايبر تصوف (cyber tasawwuf)’ (2018), and ‘Baab02.1’ (2022).
