CLICKISTAN by the artist team UBERMORGEN.COM (lizvlx and Hans Bernhard) is a work of game art and an homage to the net art of the mid-90s: it invents its own territory -- ruled by the click -- and celebrates the pixel in imaginative variations. Transparent pixels are blown out of proportion in order to create graphic shapes and abstractions, while copied-and-pasted scripts are resampled and recombined in order to -- in UBERMORGEN.COM's words -- use as many pre-existing pixels and produce as few originals as possible.

CLICKISTAN is a territory that lies somewhere at the core of Ubermorgen's work: a game that plays with art and commerce, celebrates the early days of net art and computer games, has an anarchic sense of humor, and only delivers the expected when it is time to pay.

The CLICKISTAN soundtrack is inspired by early computer games, and is supplied by the 8-bit music website http://micromusic.net

Clickistan resides between the 7th and 8th bit of every byte

it is ruled by generosity and playful curiosity

its inhabitants are honest and filled with life

they had been living poorly in an analog diaspora for many years

they took some of their remains with them back home to CLICKISTAN.
