The artists, in a wanky sort of way, say this:
“There are grand implications of error here that lead to questions, such as who exactly has been playing Giant Tetris? What were they trying to do? Could I have done better? Is the city grid similar to a computer game or different? What brain-space am I in when I’m playing games on my computer? Is it more or less alert than when I’m waiting in line for a sandwich? The work seeks to challenge conceptions of the North end of Sydney’s CBD as an orderly, socially cold grid and beckons viewers to assess their own level of interaction, play and hacking within the city.”
Sure, the description is a little wanky and pretentious, but in the end, true. My favourite part:
“What brain-space am I in when I’m playing games on my computer? Is it more or less alert than when I’m waiting in line for a sandwich?”
This is what we’re going for, people.
And besides, giant tetris is just really fucking cool.
Would you like some things to change? Would you like to wake some people up? Would you like to know about freedom? Would you like some people to just fucking lighten up?
I’m one of those known as Motspur. What you need to know about me is that I am a number of things. A person. An artist. An animal on this planet, as are we all.
We have the desire & intention to change things. Primarily the way people think. There are many problems in our world, and in our society. The first and foremost place we should be combatting these problems is in minds – our own and each others’ minds. How do we plan to do this? Through changing things that people see everyday. Perhaps in just a little way, perhaps in a big way. Through the following: Surprise. Shock. Anger. Love. Arousal. Laughter!
To that end, this blog will serve to detail the projects we are undertaking as part of our previously expressed intentions, and to provide an easy link to those who wish to assist.
Welcome, everyone. This blog is in process of being set up at the moment, and I hope you will keep an eye on it as it improves… I think there will be some very interesting content to come. Commenting & discussion is highly encouraged, whether or not you agree with our sentiments.
If you want to know more… see the links at the top of the page. Motspur for more on us. Targets for more on what we stand for. Read the posts below for all the juicy details, discussion of issues, planning of projects. The other pages for inspiration.
I look forward to working with you. Or against you. But always for you.
