GALLERY 17: Rage - Operation

Software manufacturer Rage has succeeded in using the iconography of footballer David Beckham to promote its latest video game for Sony PlayStation. Opening in a sterile, futuristic environment we find our intrepid hero lying on an operating table with sensors and equipment monitoring his every thought and reflex. A brain scan then creates 3D images as we delve into the game and become one with Beckham's football magic. The strong use of clinical whites and electric blues work in tandem to create a convincing and effective cyberworld.
