Operation Jane Walk: Eine New Yorker Stadtführung via Ego-Shooter

Ziemlich coole Idee von Robin Klengel und Leonhard Müllner: Den dystopischen Shooter „Tom Clancy’s The Division“ haben sie dazu genutzt, um eine virtuelle Stadtführung durch Manhatten mit dem Titel Operation Jane Walk zu veranstalten. Inklusive jeder Menge Informationen zur Historie und Architektur von New York City.

„Operation Jane Walk is based on a dystopian multiplayer shooter. In this work the game’s digital war zone is appropriated with the help of an artistic operation. Within the rules of the game’s software, the militaristic environment is being re-used for a pacifistic city tour. The urban flâneurs avoid the combats whenever possible and become peaceful tourists of a digital world, which is a detailed replica of Midtown Manhattan. While walking through the post-apocalyptic city, issues such as architecture history, urbanism and the game developer’s interventions into the urban fabric are being discussed.“
