billy rennekamp

if you're in nyc this is not to be missed tonight/this weekend. billy rennekamp's 'winwin' at CLEOPATRA's. "rennekamp has been collecting and creating a variety of sports balls and equipment...the artist's exhibition includes a video game in addition to videos. largely influenced by the writings of johan huizinga and roger caillois, rennekamp's work is mainly concerned with the generation of games through play within pre-established formal systems, ie. cheating." full details are here.
