Eddo Stern is an artist and game designer. He was born in Tel Aviv, Israel, and lives in Los Angeles. He works on the disputed borderlands between fantasy and reality, exploring the uneasy and otherwise unconscious connections between physical existence and electronic simulation. His work explores new modes for narrative and documentary, experimental and multidisciplinary computer game design, and cross-cultural representation in new media. He works with various media, including software, hardware and game design, live performance, video, and kinetic sculpture . His short machinima films include "Sheik Attack,” "Vietnam Romance,” “Landlord Vigilante,” and "Deathstar." He is the founder of the now-retired art and technology cooperative C-level, where he designed and co-produced the experimental computer gaming projects Waco Resurrection, Tekken Torture Tournament, Cockfight Arena and LA MOOd. He is currently developing Darkgame, a sensory deprivation computer game. His work has been widely exhibited at international venues including the Tate Gallery Liverpool, the Walker Art Center, Reina Sofia, E3, GDC, Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, the ICA, the New Museum in NYC, ICC Tokyo, and the Art Gallery of Ontario.
