short work description

This work was developed during the 500th aniversary of the publication
of Don Quixote. (2005) It plays with the co-development of two
diferent big memes that year: The book itself and the “alternatives to
copyright” meme (copyleft, creative commons, priacy, apropiationism)
and its applications to digital art.
X_Reloaded offers “interpretations” of a short segment of Don Quixote,
as if depicted by different authors like JODI, Olia Lialina, Barbara
Kruger, William Burroughs, El Lissitzki, Tony Scott or Ferran Adrià.
Besides that “als ob” game, X Reloaded is an homage to the remix
culture and appropiationism, which we consider a basic characteristic
of good net.art nowadays.
