'The Travels of Mariko Horo' at 911 Media Arts Center

What colonialism needed was a good video game. Enter artist Tamiko Thiel, raised in the U.S. and Japan. In her three-dimensional, interactive virtual-reality installation, you become Mariko Horo and images of the Western world are processed through your time-traveling, westbound Japanese eyes—hovering domes of angels and demons in Renaissance churches, photographs of the Vietnamese napalmed girl, and hooded Abu Ghraib prisoners. What sort of place is this? (911 Media Arts Center, 402 Ninth Ave N, 682-6552. Noon–6 pm, free.)
