Shooter explores the theme of immersion in games. The visitor enters the chamber and is surrounded by the ambient sounds of a gaming arcade. In the center, a mirrored cube emits laser beams that weave a web throughout the space. Upon tripping a laser, visitors find themselves incorporated into the game, experiencing what it feels like to be the target. As with any game, you always lose.

Alexis Bhagat is a sound artist and writer from New York. His work is dedicated to dismantling authorship and authority through the cultivation of new forms of radically poly-vocal sound, the transmission of promiscuous conversation, and obsessive, never-ending correspondence. He speaks and writes on anarchism, prisons, and sound art, and is a founding member of the August Sound Coalition. Bhagat is intrigued by the “lecture” as a form ripe for intervention.
