Full Description

"The Vanndemar Memex or Lara Croft Stripped Bare by her Assassins, Even" (www.memexengine.com), has been exhibited in the Walker Art Center's Art Entertainment Network (2000) and ZKM\'s Net_Condition (1999) curated by Peter Weibel.

In this post proximal world; who is speaking to you, who is giving you directives, who are you - and just whom might you be working for, who is the agent of whom? In this vast space of agency, identikits and remote operation, who operates whom?
