Here's an update on ARTSPEED, Akihiko Taniguchi's racing game featuring conceptual artworks competing on the art circuit (no, really). The game is looking increasingly polished and avantgarde. Alas, R.T: Mutt aka Marcel Duchamp's Fountain is not doing great and Umberto Boccioni's L'homme en mouvement is currently last, but I have so much faith in the Futurists, I mean, the whole spiel about speed etc. Where's F.T. Marinetti when you need him? Jeff Koons has invested lots of (his own) money to win the race and it shows but Orozco's Citroen still has a chance. I'm waiting for Maurizio Cattelan's Audi-cum-tree (Untitled, 2000).
Akihiko Taniguchi is and artist and full-time lecturer of Tama Art University and part-time lecturer of Musashino Art University. His practice includes installations, performances and video works using self-built devices and software.
