Martin Cries


Martin Cries


CATALOGUE TEXT
Martin trashes his room. Then he runs screaming through the deserted streets. No, not the streets are deserted, just Martin. So he keeps trashing. He has fist fights with passers-by and the police, shoots at wind turbines and crashes other people’s luxury cars. Martin has lost his three best friends and vents his pain in unrestrained grief, rage and desperation. He just keeps crying and running and raging and fleeing. All of this happens in the world of “Grand Theft Auto V”, an open world game whose strong graphics and endless possibilities provide powerful visualisations of this explosive emotional chaos.
