PAST EXHIBITIONS / Q4U /

Mon - Fri
Feng Mengbo's artwork Q4U, a modification
of the computer game Quake 3, utilises a broadband internet connection
to create a live link between audiences in Huddersfield, Manchester
and worldwide. This unique live collaboration between The Media
Centre, Huddersfield, and Cornerhouse, Manchester, is the first
ever UK showing of this work.
In Q4U the characters of Quake 3 are replaced with
a single 'bot' modelled on the artist; each player joining the
game is forced to play as a multiple of this character, with the
result that the game becomes a fight between several identical
representations of Feng Mengbo complete with naked torso, US army
pants and MiniDV Camcorde
This exhibition is part of Lab3D, a unique exhibition of installed
3D virtual environments by international artists, curated by Kathy
Rae Huffman of Cornerhouse, Manchester.
Presented in association with Visiting Arts.
