O.U.T.

Operation Urban Terrain: a live action wireless gaming urban intervention

OUT is a criticism of the increasing militarization of civilian life which has been implemented in the US and elsewhere since 911 ... OUT is an artistic intervention in the public space of online games and cities. OUT is also happening at a moment when the street has become again a viable mode of expression ... Two women in gear are on the ground. One with a laptop and the other with a projector pointing onto building walls in 3 key locations in the city. They are connected through a mobile wireless bicycle to an online team of five game players located around the world. They intervene on servers in a popular online military simulation game with performance actions carried out by the whole team.The live projections in the city can also be viewed through web cams on the OUT website.

(Thanks Jonah)
