"Alex Galloway and Cory Arcangel: A Video Game Saved My Life"
2004-05-11 until 2004-06-12
SF Cameraworks
San Francisco, CA, USA United States of America

Artists Cory Arcangel (Beige) and Alex Galloway (RSG) frequently draw on video games in making their own work--whether they are remixing them, hacking them, or pointing out strange internal flaws. At this event they will showcase their favorite cracked Commodore 64 games, plus perform live game hacks with the help of the audience. In a reception following their performance, Galloway signed copies of his book, PROTOCOL, or, How Control Exists After Decentralization, published by Leonardo/MIT Press.
