I’m gonna be visiting London this week, as I’ve got a few things going on. Lets do the big thing first, so, .... I’ve got an exhibition at the Barbican Curve in London. The show is called Beat the Champ, and the work I am showing is a massive video installation called “Various Self Playing Bowling Games”. It’s a big one. It is pretty much the entire history of bowling video games and each has been hacked to throw only gutter balls. 14 systems! One projected after another(!) in a row. From the Atari 2600 all the way up to the PlayStation II. So, I highly encourage coming to check it out as it should be quite a sight. Its been a few months of stress putting it all together, so I’m excited as well 2 c it installed finally. So yeah, after that is up, I’ll also be doing a re-cap of my performance Music For Stereos the night the night of the opening (so come to both!!!!!!), and the night after that, I’ll be doing a more informal artist lecture at the Night School lecture series @ Ryan Gander’s studio (with a limit of 40 ppl, so RSVP quick!). Anyway, please come and check some of this stuff out. C u there!
