Operation Jane Walk
documentary / experimental documentary
A City Tour through the Architectures of an Online Shooter. In Operation Jane Walk, the digital war zone of a video game is appropriated with the help of an artistic intervention. The urban flâneurs avoid the combats and become peaceful tourists of a digital world, which is a detailed replica of New York City. Accompanied by two guests the audience watches the performers promenading the digital battleground, exploring the possibilities (and impossibilities) of new media technologies. While walking through the post-apocalyptic city, issues such as architecture history, urbanism are being discussed.
