COMPUTER BOY

PERFORMANCE SPACE PRESENTS

COMPUTER BOY

BLOOD POLICY & APHIDS

As part of Dimension Crossing: A season of performance and installation that considers states of in-between and transition.

Computer Boy is a puppet with a 12-inch LCD screen for a face. Sometimes he is alive,other times he’s the kind of zombie we’d expect from fat, DVD fed children.

Using contemporary performance, puppetry and machinima animation, Computer Boy iscreated within the 3D virtual environment of sandbox-style games like Grand Theft Auto, and evokes our culture’s anxiety about a younger generation’s increasing immersion in – and dependence on – virtual worlds. With an original score made with video game consoles by renowned electronic composer DJ TR!P, Computer Boy is a sensationalised popular media story about the cult of youth degeneracy.

Artists: Bryony Anderson, Martyn Coutts, DJ TR!P, Sam Routledge and Willoh S. Weiland
