X Reloaded offers "interpretations" of a fragment of El Quijote (Don Quixote) by authors as diverse as JODI, Olia Lialina, Barbara Kruger, William Burroughs, El Lissitzki, Tony Scott, and Ferran Adrià. These variations deal with the theme of appropriation, the remix, and, therefore, the revision of the traditional role of the author in the digital age. We might find a reinterpretation of Cervantes' text as an experimental recipe in the style of El Bulli restaurant, or the memes of Cervantes and Burroughs in confrontation in the form of a cut-up. The work also features a reappropriation of the JODI map, originally a map of the backbone of the Internet, in this case used by Santo_file to broadcast Quijote's memes by means of Google. We will also see a free version of My Boyfriend Came Back From the War, transformed into Don Quixote Came Back from the Library.
