Phillips and Paddles ON! curator Lindsay Howard visit artist Mark Tribe at his Long Island City studio and discuss his work 'Black Creek', a photograph taken within a combat video game from his 'Rare Earth' series which explores the function of landscape as a symbolic setting for paramilitary fantasy.
