Website

Core members: Jeff Gompertz, Prema Murthy, Eugene Thacker Fakeshop is both an ongoing electronic art project and a performance and installation series. The website serves a dual function: broadcasting Fakeshop's live performances in real time and later exhibiting extracts from these performances in what founder Jeff Gompertz describes as "a series of multimedia tableaux vivants." A visit to the website automatically opens a series of windows that reproduce text and still and moving images, accompanied by a soundtrack. In conjunction with the "2000 Biennial," Fakeshop will produce a live event, developed in collaboration with other digital artists, musicians, and theorists.
