Interactive Movie Night

A special live-streamed event featuring four audience-controlled movies from three different generations. Opening the evening is Kinoautomat, a 1967 Czech satire of democracy that holds up surprisingly well today. Following next, I’m Your Man, a proof-of-concept for a future of cinema that never materialized. Representing the era of CD-ROMs is Steven Spielberg’s Director’s Choices, an original piece produced for LIKELIKE and based on a semi-forgotten educational game starring Quentin Tarantino and Jennifer Aniston. Closing the evening is The Immoral Ms. Conduct, a cheeky mix of found footage and animation set in a female prison.

The viewers will be able to vote in real time at every forking path. 

Don’t miss this unique quadruple feature! All the films are hard to find and threatened by different forms of technological obsolescence.

LIKELIKE ONLINE Presents: A Pico Pandemic

LIKELIKE online is back with a brand new virtual exhibition of tiny games about isolation, existential dread, human touch and lack thereof.

All the works in the showcase are made for PICO-8, a “fantasy console” created by Lexaloffle Games (Joseph White). Like the consoles of the ‘80s, PICO-8 imposes harsh technical limitations in terms of resolution, colors and cartridge memory. An entire community of virtuoso developers, demoscenesters, and retro-remakers thrives in this hyper constrained environment.

The Online Museum of Multiplayer Art will be open as well. Bring your friends for some safe, socially distanced, fun.

Works: STRUNG OUT in heaven’s high by Sean S. LeBlanc and Ian Martin /// Hybris by Benjamin Soulé /// Embrace by Remy Devaux /// Get Comfortable by mcccclean /// Ennuigi by Josh Millard /// Various Creators from the PICO-8 demo scene

The online Museum of Multiplayer Art

Join us for the inauguration of the oMoMA, a new wing of LIKELIKE devoted to online multiplayer art. Experience nine playful environments that interrogate our notions of mediated sociality and digital embodiment. The virtual installations, operating at the intersection of art and technology, draw from the tradition of experimental chats, net.art, conceptual language games, and online roleplaying worlds.

A message from the trustees:

LIKELIKE’s pivot to online exhibitions has proven widely successful. In the first two weeks since the opening we attracted thousands of visitors from all over the world.
What started as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic is now turning into an unprecedented expansion of our institution in terms of assets and mission. While our signature mid-brow game shows will continue as scheduled, we are adding a series of high profile acquisitions in the new spaces carved out of our easily gentrifiable virtual neighborhood. We hope you’ll appreciate our commitment to transform this local D.I.Y. arcade into a world-class art museum.

LIKELIKE ONLINE presents: An Itsy Bitsy Crisis

Join us for the opening of LIKELIKE ONLINE, the littlest Massively Multiplayer Online World! Choose a fashionable avatar, hang out with pixelated friends, stand awkwardly in the corner of a loud gallery, play obscure games together… just like before the pandemic!

This month we are presenting a selection of works about crises and rebirths. All six games are made in Bitsy, a friendly tool created by Adam Le Doux. In recent years the Bitsy scene has produced a myriad of playable zines, confessional pieces, minimalistic adventures, and interactive poems. Playing and making Bitsy games is a perfect activity for a long day in quarantine.

Persistence of Pong

Persistence of Pong (P.O.P.) is a playable installation by Pittsburgh-based artist and musician Jesse Stiles.

An ordinary ping pong table is augmented with reactive sounds and lights, turning the game into a disorienting synesthetic experience for players and spectators alike. The installation presents players with syncopated patterns of light that play with the illusion known as persistence of vision – the phenomenon that distinguishes between the perception of still images versus continuous motion. These patterns are triggered directly by the bouncing of the ball, which is detected by microphones embedded in the table. Similarly, the installation presents disorienting patterns of sound that teeter between rhythm (individual sounds) and pitch as the speed of the action increases and decreases based on game play. Players may choose to cooperate by trying to keep the ball in play through increasingly hallucinatory levels or may seek to destroy the competition in the most disorienting ping pong environment technology can provide.

Warning: this installation involves intense flashing lights that may cause discomfort or trigger seizures in people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised.

Also featuring: FLOP by Bennett Foddy

SYSTEM ERROR: A Nathalie Lawhead retrospective

Nathalie Lawhead (aka AlienMelon) is an artist and independent game designer based in Irvine, CA. Throughout the years she created a bizarro computing world made of decaying operating systems, apocalyptic apps, fascist antiviruses, and friendly virtual pets. Between pixelated revelries and hysterical glitches there are authentic moments of vulnerability. Lawhead’s playable artifacts manage to explore self-doubt, disconnection, and the horrors of our digital life in a challenging and humorous way.

Other Futures

Dystopias seem to dominate representations of future in videogames. Whether post-apocalyptic or cyberpunk, they provide a perfect backdrop for individualistic fantasies of destruction and survival. As the real world catches up with the most pessimistic predictions, we want to highlight games that prefigure better futures. Join us for a night of eco utopias, afro-futurist visions, cyberqueer adventures, joyful insurrections, and fully automated communisms.

Playing Iran

The Middle East in videogames is always portrayed as the set of imperialist wars or orientalist fantasies. Two years since the beginning of Trump’s Muslim ban, in a time when game communities are recruiting grounds for white supremacists and mass murderers, we want to offer a counternarrative. This exhibition includes six games and interactive works presenting a nuanced view on the politics, history, and mythology of Iran.
