Brent Gustafson - RIG
Do not adjust your set. This is not a test. RIG is without a doubt the most crazy and experimental work in this program. Gustafson, new media artist and wiz-kid, has a thing for all things video games. With RIG, Gustafson plays three of the most spectacular Japanese scrolling shooters running on three different platforms (DC, PS2, GC) simultaneously through one video connection. Each shooter scrolls on a different axis: Rez on Z, Ikaruga on Y, and Gradius V on X. The overlapping sounds and the distorted video imagery resemble the video feedback experiments in old-school video art.
