Joan Heemskerk and Dirk Paesmans have worked together on the Net under the name "JODI" for over five years. JODI's %Untitled Game–a reconfiguration of the source code for "Wolfenstein"–distorts the rules of engagement associated with sraightforward game-play. While being attacked by an on-screen graphic that appears to be half wolf and half bright yellow cube, we are prompted to examine our expectations and the way we inadvertently mold a subservient, service driven Net. -Gregro Muir

“JODI” have already been proposed by other curators, but rather than aim to represent a single (uncharacteristically) self-contained work, I would like to see if the institutional setting can accommodate the fluid and fragmentary nature of their best-known body of work, JODI.org. -Jon Ippolito
