A mini-retrospective of the work of a media arts-pioneer.
Joseph DeLappe has been working in the field of new media and politically based art for over 25 years. This exhibition highlights several key works, ranging from “dead-in-iraq”, wherein he entered an online network for a defense department-funded and very popular video game to type in the names of fallen US soldiers from the Iraq war to his most recent explorations of the cost and consequences of drone warfare, including the recent project “Killbox”, the critically acclaimed computer game. These and other works will represent a history of projects that seek to engage issues of memory and political action, to critically question our complicity, reliance and embrace of new technologies.
