WIWMAVG AIWLDS AATCWA
Motivational speaker and electronic sculptor bod [包家巷] (Nicholas Zhu) presents game demonstration and audio-visual performance What If We Made A Video Game And It Was Like Dark Souls And All The Characters Were Artists (WIWMAVGAIWLDSAATCWA) featuring songs from his album Music for Self Esteem (2019). The visuals are done by SwS whose pretty/menacing 90s-inspired graphics spike tracks dripping with self-awareness and its antidote.
Commissioned by KONTEJNER and Sonic Acts,What If We Made A Video Game And It Was Like Dark Souls And All The Characters Were Artists (WIWMAVGAIWLDSAATCWA) is an enclosure of the audiovisual inputs of reality into the space of art that formally unifies performance and exhibition with the practices of organised interpersonal relationships. WIWMAVGAIWLDSAATCWA is shown here as a live-action game demonstration and audiovisual performance by @flufflord (Tea Stražičić), @pirate_sheep (Marta Stražičić) and @baojiaxiang (bod [包家巷]) featuring an Intel Realsense depth camera and songs from bod’s 2019 EPMusic for Self Esteem.
