[ September 21st 2004 ]

Autonomedia is helping to organize a benefit for Steve Kurtz of the Critical Art Ensemble. Highlights of the evening will include a screening of Manuel DeLanda's documentary of his graffiti activities of the late 70s, a talk by one of the Institute for Applied Autonomy folks and a short film based on Tomb Raider.

"She-Puppet ", by Peggy Ahwesh, features footage collected from months of playing Tomb Raider. Ahwesh transforms the video game into a reflection on identity and mortality, acknowledging the intimate relationship between Lara Croft and her player. Moving beyond her implicit feminist critique of the problematic female identity, she enlarges the dilemma of Croft's entrapment to that of the individual in an increasingly artificial world.
