Three Playgirls - a character, a space and a software, mix and match a
window display using visual codes from sex, domestic and retail
environments. Housed in Amsterdam's red-light district, The Playgirls
continually compose and inhabit various hybrid window displays to match the
directions given to them by an algorithm.

The performing playgirls are:

the software (KeyStroke)
The space (Amanda Ramos)
The character (Michelle Teran)

Live webcast: October 28 - 30, starting at 17.00 Amsterdam time. (GMT +1)

The Playgirls is commissioned by AXIS Bureau Voor de Kunsten V/M for the
event GAMESHOW, October 23 - November 26, 2000 in cooperation with

to The Society for Old and New Media, Interaccess Electronic Media Arts
