BIO
Joseph DeLappe is a media artist and educator. Working with electronic and new media since 1983, his work in online gaming performance, installation and sculpture have been shown throughout the United States and abroad. His work engages politics, war, work, play, protest and human/machine relations. Much of his work over the past decade involves taking creative agency in online shooter games and virtual communities. The intent is to create works that are formally and aesthetically engaging while conceptually connecting with the everyday; to reify the ordinary into the extraordinary; to intervene in social and political realities, both real and virtual.

His works have been exhibited throughout the world. Projects have been written about and/or he was interviewed in the following media contexts: Wired.com , Salon.com , The New York Times , CNN domestic and international, NPR (National Public Radio), CBC (Canadian Broadcast Company), and The Sydney Morning Herald . He is a native of San Francisco and has resided in Reno, with his wife and twin daughters since 1993.

EVENT

Fifty Shades of Black Ops: Joseph DeLappe Gaming Performance


Dates:
Sat Sep 29, 2012 21:15 - Sat Sep 29, 2012

Location:
San Francisco, California
United States of America

Joseph DeLappe -http://www.delappe.net- will premiere a new, online gaming performance/intervention at Arse Electronika Festival 4PLAY.

Fifty Shades of Black Ops involves a live reading from the erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey by British Author, E. L. James. The reading will take place live in, real life and ingame within a Medal of Honor: Black Ops online "Free-For-All" match. DeLappe will read aloud and type, using the ingame text messaging system.

The work is intended as a wry mash-up of cultural bench marks: mixing the wildly popular "Mommy porn" with the hyper violent, best selling First Person Shooter game. Popular erotica collides with virtual violence. Fifty Shades of Grey has, to date, sold over 40 million copies worldwide. Call of Duty: Black Ops sold over 25 million copies worldwide, making it the best-selling game of all time in the US, UK and Europe.
