Programme note
WG (War Games) is not a piece of digital agit-prop; it is as much (and as little) an abstract work as any other product of our collaboration.

Having said this, if it has a sense of distance and isolation, and (particularly in the sombre, shadowy last section) a feeling almost of being a documentation of vanishing - a memorial, it is perhaps only to expected in these times of obsessive state violence. (IW)

The subject is my response to September 11 and is a reminder that not all tragedies have to be spectacular; often subtle happenings can and do change our lives in radical ways.(AG)
