 We are huge fans of Marco Mendeni’s work, which focuses on hacking 3D engines of first/third person shooters for audiovisual live performances. If you are lucky enough to be in Berlin on January 29 2013, don’t miss his new show at Altes Finanzamat, “I’m Not Playing”, developed with his partners in crime Bob Meanza and Filipe Dias De. This live performance deconstructs Activision’s war game, reconfiguring both audio and video output. As Mendeni explains, 

“Through the years, videogames have influenced our perception of space/time and our concept of identity, and we have now reached a point where real and virtual worlds are merging. In this process, the videogame as a container of ideological power cannot be underestimated. I’m n0t playing addresses all this through a war videogame played every day by millions of people: Call of Duty.” (Mendeni)

I’m not playing is an audiovisual performance that talks about the relationship between the videogame medium and the culture of simulation in the digital era.
Through the years, videogames have influenced our perception of space/time and our concept of identity, and we have now reached a point where real and virtual worlds are merging their borders. In this process, the videogame as a container of ideological power cannot be underestimated. I’m not playing addresses all this through a war videogame played every day by millions of people: COD4.
