Three limited-engagement exhibitions (originally online for Philly Tech Week 2016 and 2017 and on-site for DesignPhiladelphia 2016) featured technology-based works such as websites, software, apps, twitter feeds, etc., and were defined as Out of Frame (disruptive tech), Out of Context (displaced visual language), and Out of Bounds (playful and experimental), respectively. The participating new media artists will showcase their work for another immersive limited engagement, live for DesignPhiladelphia 2019 at Twenty-Two Gallery’s new lower-level space. Artists include Caspar Below, Josh Fishburn, Eric Juth, Tyler Kline, Dermot Mac Cormack, Jon Montenegro, Lisa Marie Patzer, S/N, and TangenT ArT CollecTive. Curated by Belinda Haikes and Gaby Heit.

The Disjointed Changelog

The Disjointed Changelog distorts the classical fable storyline, referencing coding languages and concepts of innovation in computing history to tell a story of two friends struggling with change.

The video is part of the Trilogy of Painful Changes, which has been shown in museums and at festivals in Europe and the US since 2015.

EVACUATION DRILL

THE RE-ENACTMENT

This video follows four artists, contracted for one hour to perform on demand. Their concern of what they may be made to do in the next hour, lends a twist to their performance, as they are asked to reenact seminal video art pieces from recent art history. 

THE DROWNING OF BAD ADVICE

In 2009 I ran a number of events (“I Told You So”) for participants to deposit bad pieces of advice they had received at some point, and which they’d like to rid themselves of. I offered the a service to receive this piece of advice from them, but also offered the additional service of symbolically dispatching the bad advice through a ritual of their choice. The drowning was one such ritual, which took place after a group walk with some of the participants who had volunteered their bad advice.
