After the TVNZ arts programme Backchat was canned in 1999, Urbahn offered them a final clip. C:\R.U.R.T\chatback\a digital lemon\2000 (2000) featured Urbahn in the role of criminal, being interviewed by television reporter Mark Crysell. With his face obscured and a shaved head Urbahn recounted a parallel life of cult practices including kidnapping, murder, drugs and voodoo. Urbahn’s piece was rejected by the broadcaster.

Exhibited at Prospect 2001 - New Art New Zealand, (Commercial in Confidence, installation), City Gallery, Wellington, 2001.
