I’ve recently been obsessed with Cultist Simulator. Cultist Simulator is a game in which you found a cult, attract followers, study occult books, perform arcane rites, and embark upon dangerous mystical expeditions, all in an attempt to ascend to immortality.
My favourite cult in the game is the Wildwood Club. The Wildwood Club is a cult of wildness, chaos and change, symbolised by moths and creatures that live in the leaflitter of the forest floor. I’m already obsessed with all those things anyway, even outside of the game, so I made this Wildwood Club fanart. It is a 45x60cm applique wallhanging, made using secondhand and offcut fabrics:
Here it is in situ:
And here is a closeup of the feature moth:
‘This was my past, but now I am changed. These are my garments, which I set aside. Here is my skin, but it is loaned to me. Here is my name, which is only a blindfold. Here is the Wood, where we strangle the light. Here I was, and here I am not.’
