archive: The Suicide Solution
Posted on Tuesday, November 30 @ 19:28:09 CET by julian

Machinima
Any seasoned deathmatch player will remember that eerie transubstantiation of being that occurs when s/he first suicided in game; whether spectacle, accident or necessity, we took our life only to be rewarded with another. With each new game we have one life once, yet it's this capacity to manage our potential as an infinte resource of little lives that lends itself to deviant explorations of suicide - some might argue a new metaphysics altogether.

In his ongoing investigation into the morphology of death in game, Brody offers a unique document for study of this phenomenon. Says Brody:

Suicide Solution is DVD documentation collected over the last year of committing suicide in over 50 first and third person shooter games. The title is a reference to the 1981 song of the same name by Ozzie Osbourne that was blamed for the suicide of an American teenager in 1984. Through the angst ridden logic of teen existentialism, the work offers a repetitive meditation on the act of taking one's own life in a contemporary culture intertwined with pop entertainment and simulation technology.
