«retroYou r/c» is an interactive software art project, which is based on a regular computer game. Leandre reprogrammed the software of a racing game in several stages, by manipulating the rules through which space, movement, gravity etc. are simulated. The game as such is still recognisable, however it cannot be navigated in the usual way. The application runs of its own accord, rather like a screen saver, and reacts only marginally to the user’s actions.
