This project is the result of my initial attempts to modify videogames for artistic purposes. As it was one of the most popular FPS titles I decided to exploit the source code of the original Quake1 game. In this case I chose to transform the graphics engine to produce a highly abstract environment that not only reduced the actual 3D ambitions of the original to minimal 2D planes but also exposed the pixel mechanics behind the software. Q has been exhibited at the ICA and the ‘Abstraction Now‘ exhibition in Vienna.

  4. I think that everything composed made a ton of sense. But, what about this?
    suppose you added a little information? I mean, I don’t want to
    tell you how to run your blog, but suppose youu added a headline that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Q « nullpointer is kinda
    boring. You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news titles to
    grab people interested. You might add a related video or a pictrure or two
    to grab people excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it
    could briing your posts a little bit more interesting.

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else
    experiencing issues with your blog. It seems like some of
    the text within your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know
    if this is happening to them as well? This may be a issue with
    my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before.
