our (Jake Elliott + jonCates) experimental Art Game “A Moth In Relay” will get set loose soon in your systems!
“(moth) in relay” is made @ the invitation of + for LA Game Space, a hot new project for Art / Indie Games!
in our ”(moth) in relay” you can “play” / navigate / “date” as Grace Hopper, a moth or an an electromechanical computer. go towards the light of glitches. get attracted to broken systems. navigate through randomized relationships in our glitchy take on a dating simulation game.
This video/film program is a screening inspired by storms and digital sorcery, or more pointedly, an assemblage of lights and sounds to elicit a chaotic vortex of smudgy black charcoal that is streaked with freezing water, painted on celluloid, stained by sea creatures, hexed through new media, and entranced by guitar riffs. It includes moving images and sounds by Aldo Tambellini, Cultus Sabbati, Gast Bouschet and Nadine Hilbert, jonCates, mojo (for Aluk Todolo), Reto Mäder and Daniel Steffen (for Ural Umbo), Alexander Stewart, and Semiconductor.
.blacK~SSStaTic_darK~fuZZZ_dOOm~glitCH. was curated by invitation for Nitehawk Cinema’s Artist Film Club in Brooklyn, NY, where it premiered on January 24, 2013.
The Chicago screening will include an additional chapter, with video by Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder and sound by Olivia Block.

Genealogy is the study of lines of descent and origin; the development of families and the tracing of their lineages and history. (glitch) Art however, does not exist as a linear history or as some kind of glitch continuum. Following Foucault, the aim of a genealogy here is not to analyse a subjects history from a singular perspective or to try to form a narrative where one event impacts on the next, but to recognise the complexities and processes of its many affiliated histories.
(glitch) Art does not follow this traditional forking family tree-form. Rather there are many, parallel, interconnected non-linear, fragmented and overlapping histories which impact each other in many directions. This (glitch) genealogy does not focus on Glitch Art from as singular viewpoint, nor does it attempt to give some all encompassing overview. The exhibition instead focuses on the different threads that interconnect generations of the different communities of visual (glitch) artists and their working methods, conceptual themes and problematics.
(glitch) Genealogies fragments Glitch history into multiple (historical) categories, such as ‘NES-Aesthetics’, ‘GUI Politics’, ‘literacy’, ‘Authorship’ and ‘3D glitch Reality’.
In discussing the issue of Glitch genealogies our aim is not to create a historical review or (re)create a ‘total’ archive or inclusive overview, we look at these genealogies with the aim of understanding Glitch Art in the present.
