The game maker is present

You may remember the why-shoot-at-things-when-you-can stand-in-a-queue-for-five-hours computer game based on Marina Abromovich’s performance. The artist is present caused an internet buzz resulting in around 150,000 people joining the virtual queue to sit with virtual Marina in its first month. Now, as part of the increasing interest art museums are showing in digital based work, Pippin Barr (did we ever mention that he is our son? Possibly) has been invited to join a two-day symposium and to talk about his game at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. You can check out the other panellists and details here.
