About this Item

Neuware - In the computer games of multimedia artist Felix Stephan Huber, players enter abandoned spaces, natural landscapes or urban centers that are inhabited by characters from games like Spiderman and Lara Croft, or by simple humanoid avatars and bots. Huber subversively creates melancholy atmospheres that appropriate typical game rhetoric of first-person shooter and adventure games and reveal their mechanisms. The book presents numerous games by the artist, including color screenshots, installation photographs, layout sketches as well as sound file transcripts. The works are introduced by texts from Doris Lösch, Uli Rathjen and Peter Bexte, while Sibylle Omlin examines the significance of digital gaming culture and computer games in contemporary art. 208 pp. Deutsch.
