Looking for video artist
March 11, 2009 12:23 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a video artist's website (that I first saw linked on metafilter) -- the artist in question did series (maybe 9?) of web videos of a heavyset guy (possibly the artist himself.) In each of the videos, the guy INTERACTED with the cursor: for example, if you moved the arrow on the trackpad across the video, the guy would suddenly SLAP the cursor out of the way. I've tried all the tags I can think of, but cannot locate the site. Help?

It's not Hoogerbrugge, is it? I wouldn't exactly describe him as heavy-set, though.

Best answer: Found it! It's called Selfcontrolfreak. FWIW, I tracked it down by searching Google Reader for all Mefi posts that included the word "interactive".

Best answer: ...and the FPP. Tags used were "selfcontrolfreak", "interactive", and "Flash".

This is a Japanese flash game where you try to keep a little [fat] man from eating your cursor. via Burhanistan in Metatalk
