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.
YOU CAN REMIX-IT-RIGHT?!
REMIX-IT-RIGHT is a screening program of contemporary video and new media artists remixing and reimagining works by Chicago Media Art pioneer Phil Morton. Morton’s genre-defying work anticipated remix; he also developed COPY-IT-RIGHT, an alternative to copyright that encourages making, sharing, re-editing and distributing media art!
