An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in GTA Online
Michael Crowe's An Attempt At Exhausting a Place in GTA Online takes George Perec's serene 1975 conceptual exercise in Paris as its starting point, reenacting it within the chaotic and excessive virtual world of Grand Theft Auto Online. Giddy murder, Fassbinder lookalike contests, and amber lights twinkling in the far distance all dance together as Michael Crowe attempts to exhaust one location in the world's most popular video game.
With an accompanying essay by Jamie Sutcliffe, this publication playfully explores the discursive spaces of online games and questions their relationship to our current material world and potential immaterial futures.
