Happy Doomsday! is a computer game and an information machine dealing with the culture of war as it developed in Europe during pre-historical and historical times.
During the International Film Festival Rotterdam and as part of the
Exploding Cinema programma, V2_ presented the Dutch premier exhibition
of the interactive multi-user installation Happy Doomsday! by Cãlin Dan (RO/NL). Happy Doomsday!
is a reflexion about history and action, modelled on a computer game in
which two users go into battle. Two fitness machines function as
interfaces and navigation tools in the virtual battlegrounds and
dungeons of European culture.
