Defendex and Surrealist Games
On Wednesday, July 8th, Fishbon Event Lab operatives were treated to a demonstration of the awesome Defendex, now fully operational and a permanent installation at the Fishbon Pescadrome. Developed by Mark David and partner as part of their Ph.D. program at UCSB's Media Arts and Technology program, the project illustrates the futility of war as a solution to world challenges. Later in the evening, Mark David led agents in a hands-on experiment with a series of Surrealist Games developed by artists in the early part of the 2oth century.
