Brent Watanabe's latest project is the follow up to his hugely influential San Andreas Deer Cam (2015-2016). The San Andreas Community Cam is a live video stream from a computer running a modded version of Grand Theft Auto V, hosted on Twitch.tv. Broadcast will begin on January 20, 2017at 8am PST, that is, the presidential inauguration day in the US. Basically, this is an algorithm-based, (virtual) reality TV show. As Watanabe explains:
The mod follows the citizens of San Andreas, a fictional state in GTA V based on California. The citizens are programmed to control themselves and make their own decisions, with no one actually playing the game. The citizens are ‘playing themselves’, with all activity unscripted.
