China’s leading new media artist shows works related Q4U at ShanghART,

Q4U is Feng Mengbo adaptation of the popular Internet game ‘Quake
3’. The new game is featuring a 3-D likeness of Feng Mengbo holding a video
camera in one hand and a plasma riffle in the other. The story is the same as
in the original Quake 3: simply kill or be killed.

‘Q4U’ was shown at the 11th Documenta in Kassel and, in an other
