Exhibition catalogue published in conjunction with show “Cory Arcangel (Beige): Nerdzone Number 1,” April 2 - May 22, 2005. Essay by Raphael Gygax. Includes exhibition checklist, biography, solo and group exhibitions, screenings, curated projects and performances. “With Beige, a collective of fellow programmers, [Arcangel] has embarked on a hacker's nostalgia trip: his return to Super Mario Brothers removes all of the action to leave a landscape of blue sky and puffy clouds; Shoot Andy Warhol is a working video game in which viewers gain points for hitting Warhol and lose them by accidentally shooting Colonel Sanders, the Pope or Flavor Flav instead. Arcangel appropriates and rewrites electronic history, and his accessible sites and published code offer viewers tools for action in a reality that is less and less tangible, through a field that has come to dominate our daily lives.” — From the publisher
