The full Trilogy of Painful Changes is being shown as part of OUT OF FRAME / Philadelphia Tech Week. The Trilogy of Painful Changes tells the story of three different experiences of difficult or hard to accept transformations and paradigm shifts.
OUT OF FRAME is a curated online exhibition showcasing work defined as Disruptive Tech.
*dis-rup-tive (adj.) troublesome, unruly, badly behaved, rowdy, disorderly, undisciplined, wild. The ten participating artists showcase technology-based works that disrupt systems, such as websites, software, apps and twitter feeds. These tech-based works disrupt with tech, through tech or in contrast to tech. Participating artists: Caspar Below, Nia Burks, Marco De Mutiis, Chris Eben, Hope Hutman, Tyler Kline, Jon Montenegro, Lisa Marie Patzer, Michael Richison and TangenT Art Collaborative.
ATHICA is exhibiting an international selection of micromedia works, including 6-60 second videos and animated GIFs. The GIF and Vine microformats are now responsible for democratizing the short form video across the Internet, in which average people can easily create and proliferate micromedia in order to engage, enlighten, and entertain. Micromedia bring together the spontaneity of participative culture and the aesthetics of digital artistic practice in a radical recontextualization of what it means to make and experience art.
The Trilogy of Painful Changes tells the story of three different experiences of difficult or hard to accept transformations and paradigm shifts.The different perspectives are told as digital fables, using abstract characters in a familiar storytelling format. The text based video animations use glitch aesthetics and speed reading technology to set the characters on a collision course at a rate of up to 300 words per minute.
The End of Ebb and Flow describes the double act of opposing forces and characters, bound to each other by mutual dependency and disdain, to illustrate the invisible linkages that may exist at the heart of our physical and virtual communities, and the lack of control over the outcomes our actions may have.
Modernity on the Outhouse is based on Aesop’s fable the Kid and the Outhouse, rewritten to contrast the concepts of Modernity and Tradition in a fictional encounter, to satirise their relationship. The story is framed by “glitch video”-fragments, footage created through the corruption of digital files.
The Disjointed Changelog is the centre piece of the trilogy. It 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 has been developed in response to the Cambridge Centre for Computing History’s collection.
The Trilogy of Painful Changes is part of Art Language Location’s Supertext Programme and can be seen in the Video Bar at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU).
Enter ARU via East Road. Pick up a guide at reception and follow the signs to find the artworks.
The video bar is located on the lower ground floor beneath the Ruskin Gallery at Anglia Ruskin University. It’s best accessed by following the signs for the Ruskin Gallery, then downstairs to the Video Bar.
The Disjointed Changelog is a text based video distorting 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 has been developed around an ongoing dialogue with the Cambridge Centre for Computing History and is being shown in the context of the seminal machines, games and artefacts that made computing history. This showing of this video is part of the Art Language Location 2015 Satelllite programme
Centre for Computing History Rene Court Coldhams Road Cambridge CB1 3EW
Directions: The Disjointed Changelog is shown in the context of the Cambridge Centre Computing History’s permanent collection.
The museum is on an industrial estate, which is very close to the Beehive Shopping Centre in the east of Cambridge.
From the City Centre and passing the Anglia Ruskin Campus, the number 114 towards Addenbrookes or 17 towards Fulbourn to get off on Coldhams Lane, at the stop opposite Brampton Road (Stop: 0500CCITY154).
Alternatively, on a nice day, the Bus Citi 3 will take you to a stop near Ditton Walk, from where you can take the panoramic path across Coldhamn’s Commons to Coldhams Lane (10min walk).
From Coldhams Lane, follow the road round to your right onto Coldhams Road on to the commercial estate. Just before the railway crossing, turn into Rene Court on the right and you will see the Centre for Computing History there.
