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.

Gandhi in Prison - A Performative Reenactment in Second Life

Twitter Torture

May 5, 2009- January 26th, 2010

MGandhi is currently in prison This reenactment commenced on May 5th of 2008 to coincide with the 79th anniversary of Gandhi’s post-Salt March imprisonment by the British in 1930.

Media artist Joseph DeLappe aka MGandhi Chakrabarti presents an ongoing, durational reenactment and performative reading in Second Life, Twitter and Facebook. MGandhi is presently online 24 hours a day in his cell for a 9-month reenactment of Gandhi’s 1930 post-Salt March jail sentence. DeLappe inhabits MGandhi daily to interact with visitors and to engage in a performative reading of the recently released and now infamous Bush-era Torture Memos. "Twitter Torture", as commenced on July 4th, 2009, is a durational, performative reading by MGandhi/DeLappe of the torture memos. The live readings performed in Second Life are fed live, to DeLappe’s Twitter and Facebook updates.

MGandhi will be released from prison on January 26th, 2010.

This work is a continuation of MGandhi/DeLappe’s “Salt Satyagraha Online: Gandhi’s March to Dandi in Second Life” which took place from in the Spring of 2008 wherein DeLappe and his avatar walked throughout Second Life using a treadmill converted for use in cyberspace. DeLappe/MGandhi walked 240 miles over the 78th anniversary dates of the Gandhi’s Salt March.
