Brent Watanabe's follow up to San Andreas Streaming Deer Cam (2016) is titled San Andreas Community Cam, a live video stream from a computer running a modded version of Grand Theft Auto V, hosted on Twitch.tv. It's painful to watch (lots of crying involved) and yet uncannily compelling. It was made for post-human viewers in mind. The side comments are obviously an inherent part of the artwork and, like the activities of the AI controlled characters, are unscripted. Fascinating.
As the artist writes:
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. The piece is presented as a live stream on sanandreascommunitycams.com.
