His oeuvre consists mainly of video material and computer games. For example, in 2002 he presented a version of the computer game “Quake III” at the Documenta in Kassel. In 2004 he received the Ars Electronica Culture Prize for his work “Ah_Q – A mirror of Death”. Another one of his acclaimed works is the video installation of the computer game “The Long March: Restart”.
