Performance / presentation given at Freeplay 2010, Melbourne, Victoria as an invited guest for a session entitled "Beyond the controller"

This performance intended to review the follies of tangible interface design for games since the appearance of games specific control peripherals in the 1980s. In this work I examine: Technology as prosthesis – designed artefacts that enable interaction in a virtual world; Technology as the dream of virtuality – mind-ware. IN each instance the controller DICTATES the form of interaction
