5/23's program turns on the uses and abuses of electronic games, gadgets, and gizmos. Headlining this experimental lab is the East Bay A/V crew Killer Banshee, with A Wake for Analog, a live performance reckoning with the ghosts in the machine.
ALSO in person is David Cox with his illustrated history of video games, a fascinating overview of the amazing changes in this modern genre. Following is a sampling of Machinima,
that even newer practice in which video games are hacked to tell new stories. PLUS The premiere of Carl Diehl’s Patrolling the Ether, Caspar Stracke’s Zuse Strip, Cyrus Tabar’s Tunnel Vision installation, circuit-bending shorts, and a goofy introduction to Negativland’s Booper. Come early for Bassline Baseline, Nate Harrison's history of the Roland TB 303.
