online game performance art

Here's a nice example of political protest/art action within the us
army recruiting game:
http://www.turbulence.org/blog/archives/002377.html

(via networked performance and we-make-money-not-art)

I'm interested in this category of work in general: art actions or
performances that take place within game space – does anyone else
know of good or interesting examples of what people are doing?
Marisa once mentioned some people performing hamlet within a game -
anyone have the specifics?

the obvious ones that come to mind are VelvetStrike
http://www.opensorcery.net/velvet-strike/
and the other examples of DeLappe's game works

Thanks Andrej, thanks Charles!

Interesting viewing all. More please! I think Charles project came
closest to what I was imagining – actually using the in-game space.
Other projects?

Subject: RHIZOME_RAW: Virtual Opening of "The Real"


Ars Virtua Gallery & New Media Center invites the public to the opening
of it's inaugural show entitled "The Real."

The event will be held on the grounds of Ars Virtua which can be found
through http://slurl.com/secondlife/Dowden/41/58/52/ in the 3d rendered
world of Second Life.

Six artists are represented in this show which examines the nature of
observation, movement, communication, contact, and fetish in the virtual
environment of the avatar.

These investigations form the basis of questioning what is real, they go
beyond the experience of the user at the keyboard to reference that
similar and familiar experience of the driver behind the wheel. The
metaphor remains consistent between the two. The answers we arrive at
are not surprising and are no more profound than the pen on your desktop.

The show runs from April 28 through June 23, 2006 with the opening and
artist's reception at 7pm SLT (Pacific Daylight Time) on April 28.

You may have already seen this. It is one of the most powerful anti war games I have found.

It is called September 12th by Gonzalo Frasca. It hits the nail right on the head as far as I'm concerned. War breeds more terrorists.
