INTERNET ART: networks, performative programming, and web as context

Do parodies count as performance art?

I compiled a bunch of clips to create this thing.

Essentially, this is a cat-and-mouse game where online players choose one or the other. Since players can’t chat during the game (unless they are Skyping another player), they rely on body language to communicate. Some people take it a bit too far…

Caution: Yakety Sax plays for 3 1/2 minutes straight.

Creating Humorous Narratives with Parts of Games

While watching the footage of GTA gameplay turned into a story, I thought of the many skits I’ve seen on Youtube using free video software where you can add assets from other games, such as Portal. Characters can essentially be used as puppets to act out a narrative. I’m sorry in advance.

MMORPG = Art?

I also hold the belief that all games are art, however, my specific example of game is an 8+ year old MMORPG called Mabinogi that I still can’t quit.

Despite its very outdated graphics, most NPCs feature a little 2-D anime-style bust shot of themselves and many cutscenes have more 2-D drawings of the same style. This is not to say the 3-D art isn’t just as much art as the 2-D.
