Using CuseeMe video-conferencing, Realaudio broadcasting and other assorted hi/lo tech tools, Fakeshop attempts to build an electronic theatrical device surrounding the subject of public-media as personal-memory.

Fakeshop presents:

                      MULTIPLE DWELLING
A Performative Installation with Remote Data Hookup Three
Saturdays in June
June 6, 13, 20, 1998
8 pm
duration: 4 hours
MULTIPLE DWELLING is an installation project which will
exist simultaneously in a real, physically-constructed space and
an artificial, digitally-generated one. It is a techno-poetic
response to the theories of Antonin Artaud, Delueze/Guattari
and The Critical Art Ensemble on the concept of a "Body
without Organs."
The installation project is instigated by a scene from the movie
"Coma," in which a room full of bodies, involuntary donors of
their own organs, float, suspended in a state of perpetual coma.
In Multiple Dwelling, these suspended bodies, once comatose,
will be shocked to their senses through an overload of
audio-visual ephemera and complete technical breakdown.
The physical installation will be constructed of
industrial-minimalist structures, platforms for observation,
scanning and accumulation of bio-data, computers and
associated input and output devices. Software programs for the
sound and construction of the digital aspect of the installation
have been specifically designed for the project by Japanese
sound architect, Kondo and Marek Walzcak, a VRML architect.
