On a drive in a recreational vehicle (RV) through a virtual reality (VR) theme park,
VR/RV explores the displacement and disembodiment of a technologically
determined culture which co-mingles video games and computerized war.
Floating within this immersive computer generated electronic superhighway, video
billboards serve as staging areas for utopian visions and dystopian nightmares-
the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and ‘smart bombs’ of the Persian Gulf War.
