Administrative Maximum: Towards the End of the Broadcast is an interactive web project that investigates issues of control, desires for mediated violence, and the nature of the voyeuristic impulse in a culture where technology both limits autonomy and provides for unmitigated possibilities for utopian agency in the world of digital fantasy. An aggressive and oversaturated network of stimuli and possible performance strategies, the viewer is given moments of choice only to be thwarted by predetermined outcomes that reveal the impossibility of winning. The site is developed from several hundred ages of interactive flash animations and games, live video feeds combed from the internet, and sound, and is continuously being expanded.
