Interview with Jessica Mulligan by Mika 'Lumi' Tuomola in 2004


From the archives of the Media Lab Helsinki 10 Years Seminar in 2004 (video dir. Petri Kola, organised by Arki / Kari-Hans Kommonen: 'Stories we tell / Mirrors we hold' Interview with Jessica Mulligan by Mika 'Lumi' Tuomola Introduction by Philip Dean The Stories we tell / Mirrors we hold interview paints a portrait of Jessica Mulligan, an eighteen year veteran of the online game industry with extensive experience in producing and managing massively multiplayer persistent story-worlds. What kind of life experience makes a person want to become a professional storyteller? What urges her to share her stories with interactive audience as co-authoring participants? Why a drama actor wants to become a multiplayer game world developer? What kind of mirrors is the games industry holding up to the face of mankind in comparison to accustomed drama and linear storytelling? A personal experience, the substance of all storytelling, is in the core of the interview. Or, as Walter Benjamin would argue: only a point of view can transform information into an experience and story. Enjoy the 25 minute ride! Jessica Mulligan, a former actor specialising in Shakespeare, has held a number of positions within the game industry since 1986, including President of The Themis Group from 2001-2002 and Director of Operations at MM3D, Inc., where she was in charge of game services for Middle Earth Online from 2000-2001.
