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."
