I'll be in Austin this coming week for a bunch of events.
First, a Sun Tzu to Xbox talk at Monkeywrench Books on Sunday, September 17 at 8 pm
110 E. North Loop
Austin, Texas 78751
Then, I'm Guest Artistic Director at this year's Cinematexas festival (September 20-24), an event I've long been a huge fan of. In addition to some great offerings of 16mm filmmaking and video art I've organized, there' re a few video game related artist I've invited who'll be there with their work ---
Eddo Stern (of Waco Resurrection, Tekken Torture Tournament and others) will premiere his Darkgame (Prototype) (pictured) which is a game with a audio-physical interface rather than an audio-visual one: your special helmet whacks you on the head to tell you where to go.
Paul Slocum and Lauren Gray of Treewave will perform, using Paul's array of modified Atari, Commodore 64, portable PC and dot-matrix printer to make their beautiful music.
And one of the elusive and pioneering Net Art duo Jodi will be on hand all the way from the Netherlands for an installation of their game mod piece Max Payne Cheats Only.
