Many of today's artists are looking forward by looking back. Fascinated by the huge, chunky blocks of primary colors and all things that go blip in the night, they draw inspiration from the glitches and grit of the ghosts in the machines of yore. Using these crude tools, they express ambiguity and emotions in mediums that were once only considered utilitarian tools for office work or after school amusement. We'll be exhibiting short films from contemporary filmmakers like Jacob Ciocci, Shana Moulton, and Cory Arcangel. Then we kick back and enjoy a performance after film ends by experimental music diviner Daedalus.
