Digital media artist and activist Joseph DeLappe has worked in new media since 1983, and in online, computer-game-based interventionist performance art since 2001. His recent projects include dead-in-iraq (2007), wherein he enters the name of each American military casualty from the war in Iraq into the popular U.S. government–funded “America’s Army” computer game; and The Salt Satyagraha Online: Gandhi’s March to Dandi in Second Life (2008), for which he created a “mixed-reality” durational performance utilizing a converted exercise treadmill to reenact Mahatma Gandhi’s 1930 Salt March. DeLappe discusses his continuing projects at the intersection of art and activism.
