Desert Rain has become a significant work in the world of performance and new media. It is a game, an installation and a performance placing particpants in a collaborative virtual environment and sending them on a mission into a virtual world. The piece is influenced by Jean Baudrillard's assertion that the Gulf War did not take place because it was in fact a virtual event.
