"Untitled Game is a set of modifications, or 'mods,' of the video game Quake 1 ... [It] was made just as game modifications began to gain widespread recognition as an art form unto itself. JODI made the piece by altering the graphics of Quake as well as the software code that makes it work. Their mods reduced the complex graphics of Quake 1 to the bare minimum, aiming for maximum contrast between the complex soundscapes and the minimal visual environment."
This interactive CD-ROM was inspired by the Wooster Group's play House/Lights, which is itself based on a Gertrude Stein play. A playful philosophical investigation of how theories of perception and logic developed in relation to technology, Beloff envisions a digital media equivalent to Stein's radical restructuring of language.
