Riot Gear for Rollartista *Version en espa=F1ol abajo*
A blog and mobile gaming performance project by

and Talice Lee talice@talicelee.net<mailto:talice@talicelee.net>

This blog is for posting information about a
performance action we are doing in Castellon,
Spain on Saturday October 21, 2006 as part of an
exhibition at EACC Espai d=92Art Contemporani de
Castell=F3 from October-January 2007. It will
involve three short Machinima (stories told with
video game footage) videos that will be beamed
from an ultra-light projector stapped to one of
our head helmets. (The videos are now linked from
the blog to YouTube.) We sampled the two
Playstation games Narc and MechWarrior. It sort
of evolved into a violent (break) dance musical
and each video is dedicated to an African or
Muslim immigrant who was seriously abused by
police in Spain or France. We, two American women
in padded anime/riot gear/something else inspired
moda, will be holding Playstation controllers and
rollerskating at the same time, (and sometimes
dancing), while we coast around projecting onto surfaces of the city.

After the performance/action we will also post
documentation videos and photos on the blog at:
