game modification (Half-Life)
DVD documentation of performance 7 min

"A gibbed dissent on a Calvin Klein billboard, Brody seeds his prolific practice of game data refurbishments at the very ramp of the first-person shooter's most popular taboo - wanton and hapless representative killing. His post-punk operation on the first person camera leaves us without a stable ground for mournful debate on the genre's dubious preoccupations, rather positions the first-person shooter as a laboratory for experimenting with dying, and even laughing about it."
