“Outbound” Landmark depicting themes and in-game clues for The Inbound Lands Forest region.

As one of 24 artists chosen from Tennessee to be included in the Queen Avenue Modular Art Pods, the work within Landmark: The Process Way introduces visitors to the mythology behind a major route within the Forest Region, and allows them to participate in the rituals behind the path. Housed within a 4′ x 4′ by 6′ tall “pod” structure, contained within a maze of other artist-designed pods, The Process Way provides in-game clues and gameplay experiences to travelers from The Outbound World.

Guardians along The Process Way

The enormous span of The Process Way is tended, maintained, and overseered by a loose cadre of coordinators known as Guardians. Their numbers draw from those who have completed the path, and their main intent is to uphold the path as a viable experience, sustainable economy, and ritual.
