In 1997 Microsoft created the truetype dingbats font, Webdings, the highly anticipated sequel to Wingdings.

Golden Eye

LJ Frezza, video, col, sound, 2013, 6 min
Propaganda is the dissemination of data and surveillance is the collection of data. The James Bond series of films is a collection of propaganda, glorifying the practice of espionage. This is an abridged history of surveillance in the 20th Century, every James Bond movie released before the War on Terror. It is an examination of the permanent State of Exception in which US Citizens find ourselves, where extralegal proceedings have become the standard operating procedure.

Explosions Bring Us Closer Together

Jonathan Johnson, video, color & b/w, 2012, 1min 32sec
I am interested in new meanings and formal relationships that come to the surface when sound and image from various sources are re-contextualized. I consider internet, personal, found and archival images as latent records that reveal the comedy, geography and drama of our social lives. “Explosions Bring us Closer Together” montages found images and sound to create a reflection on the interconnectivity made possible through technology, however dark and absurd.

runtime error

Sandra Araujo, video, col, sound, 2013, 4min 12sec
Video games are emergent systems with their own particular internal relationships. This animation mashes up and deconstructs game spaces taking on a multitude of forms, from scrolling on one axis to several separate screens. The blocky 2D grids plasticity is emphasized through a reduced color palette in order to favor formal representation of early video games against the photorealistic, logically consistent 3D game spaces of recent years.

Los Angeles II

Angela Ferraiolo, video, col, silent, 2013, 2min 24sec
A common area of investigation for generative artists is the effects of chaos on ordered systems. In Los Angeles II, small amounts of chaos or randomness are gradually introduced into the normal sort order of image pixels. The resulting video shows the struggle between order and chaos as the sorting rules of the video frame begin to fall apart.

Matt Town, 16mm, b/w, silent, 2012, 3min 3sec
