CompUSA Live!

COMP USA Live is a live desktop theater television internet show that takes place entirely within a computer. Performers are filmed and transported to the desktop in real-time as drama unfolds amongst computer windows, software, dance numbers, loading bars, crashes and all of the nitty gritty delights of raw desktop computer usage.

Mark Fingerhut is an artist and programmer who is primarily interested in the potential of desktop computer usage as performance. Using a handmade suite of software,malware, and virus-like programs called “artdisks” he transforms his desktop computer environment into a theatrical stage of potential where anything is possible and the rules of the OS are bent and broken.
