'The Stalker Stalked'
V2_ will create in the context of theme Power: Play of the International
Film Festival Rotterdam an interactive media shooting gallery.
'The Stalker Stalked' will question the role of the voyeur as participant
in the world's diverse Power Plays through a narrative and an interactive
media project.The installations presented within the shooting gallery are
about watching and being watched and play with the varying and unclear
positions of power between stalkers and the stalked, or offender and
victim. V2_s presentation hall will become, for the duration of the
International Film Festival Rotterdam, the site in which the stalker is to
be stalked and where the visitor is confronted by virtual persons, which
they can observe, challenge and manipulate.

The game is situated in a small house made of wooden panels which will be
used for projections of women holding guns. Entering the house the viewer
is confronted with a projection of a computerized video game. By operating
a joy stick, the viewer can actively get involved into shooting home-baked
cakes. The women on the exterior of the house are also part of the game
