I'm currently in the process of re-designing this site. Some sections may be a bit confused.
Off to Vancouver for this exhibition at the ISEA2015 (http://isea2015.org/
), curated by Dene Grigar:
Looks like some interesting work here, I'll be showing SATURATED HIGHWAY FOREST DEATH PSYCH SYNTH PANIC etc... for the first time, which should include some video, sound, a live event with a corporate futurologist and possibly T-shirts
I'll be talking here (Poznan) in the "Politics of Performance' strand, making a presentation drawing on Ray Brassier, Mattin, J-L Guionnet & Murayama Seijiro's booklet Idioms and Idiots
to discuss platforms for nyctalopic superidiocy in the university.
Also writing a short text, 'Bits of Idiot', for the accompanying publication.
