‘DeResFX.Kill(KarmaPhysics < Elvis)’ (2004) by Brody Condon

Karma Physics < Elvis is a modification of the bloody science fiction first person shooter computer game Unreal 2003.

The viewer is pulled slowly through an infinite pink fog filled with floating, twitching bodies of Elvis Presley. The convulsions of Elvis are controlled by the original game’s Karma Ragdoll real-time physics system – generally used to simulate the physical dynamics of game character death.

At the opening Bas was sitting by a table with a sandwich toaster in front of him. The owners of the bicycle could choose whether they wanted the bicycle back and take the toaster too, or if they wanted the bicycle back and have a conversation with the artist about his motivations for stealing the bike.
