Chinese Coin - Preview
Sun 8 November 2015, 14:00 – 16:00 GMT
For NEoN Festival, Vienna-based artists Ubermorgen are making a brand new video installation following on from their research into the Chinese videogame so called ‘gold-mining’ industry, in which players repeat actions in online games, in order to gain points or currencies for their video game characters, which are then sold via ebay (their video ‘Chinese Gold’ was shown by NEoN at this summer’s DARE). For NEoN Festival, Ubermorgen are now working with video footage they have taken from a Bitcoin generating factory to create a loud immersive view onto a site not often seen and about which very little is known.
