This video documents one of RSG's self-playing video game consoles, hacked to exploit existing bugs and glitches in the code. In this case, a commercial skateboarding game provides the source. As hard rock, punk, and rap play in the background, the skater protagonist twitches and flails, attempting to navigate the quirky architectures RSG has "prepared." Alex Galloway writes, "I wanted to do something in the same spirit as when Nam June Paik put the magnet on top of the TV."
