Z-rush - Operation S.M.E.T. is a short machinima film by NY-based artist Arvid Logan. An homage to the videogames of his childhood, Arvid's video presents a loose narrative based on two playthroughs of the fictional games Z-rush - Operation: S.M.E.T. (Smet Corp) and Mosquito 3.7 (CION/CTON Productions). It was originally created for the group exhibition RE-MAP at DOMICILE Tokyo in Tokyo, Japan. Arvid Logan starred alongside fellow machinima artist Jacky Connolly in the unreleased feature film Game House, directed by Asher Penn, "which tells the story of a celebrated video game programmer who relocates to a cabin in the woods only to be terrorized by unwanted objects and characters both in her game and her surrounding landscape".
Arvid Logan is the co-founder of Dizzy, a print magazine focusing on the arts: painting, writing, film, music, style, and beyond, all with an intergenerational span. Logan is also a painter who also makes airbrushed shirts and hosts the radio show Know Wave and he is a member of the music-and-art collective Letter Racer.
