SPEED SHOW: while loop is true
27th of April 2011, Chicago, USA
Curated by jonCates

Chicago’s 1RST SPEED SHOW!

COPYMAX
1321 N Milwaukee Ave
Chicago IL
60622

INTRO:

im super excited to be curating the "SPEED SHOW: while loop is true" Chicago’s 1RST SPEED SHOW! :) in the summer of 2010, the 1rst SPEED SHOW happened in Berlin + i was involved as an exhibiting artist. i was able to goto the show + met ppl IRL who i had known online as well as mtg old + new (media art) friends. i attended the following SPEED SHOW in Vienna, which was similarly awesum. + then when the SPEED SHOW came to the US i was also involved as an exhibiting artist in the NYC show. now, crossing over from artist to curator of Chicago's SPEED SHOW, on ARAM's invitation, im happy to share new works by sum young emerging, well-known + tumblr-famous artists.

the theme of this exhibtion, "while loop is true" refers to looping in New Media. Digital Art has a few special qualities, including the fact that looping is a programmatic feature utilized in computing. looping is also an option or even a default state for file playback. digital audio technologies preceded the ubiquity of other digital media forms (such as video) + therefore, in many ways, established certain standards or approaches such as sampling + remix. experimental and Electronic Music often relies on looping (from tape loops to sample banks, etc...) + New Media Art forms are inspired by these technocultural aestheticonceptechniques.

the works in this exhibition engage these background issues against the backdrop of Chicago's Loop, the skyline downtown + the pathways of the trains that encircle our city center.

this exhibition is also a mixtape, in which i have paired web-based art works with tracks by musicians, all of whom i follow online. i have also made a literal limited edition mixtape for those of you who have come out to the event. i follow Little White Earbuds' Curator's Cuts series (a podcast of electronic music) + i appreciate their way of deploying ideas of curating mixtapes. for the mix that i have curated in this exhibition, the the physical cassette tapes have the mix forwards on side A + backwards on side B. this is a limited run (of a potentially unlimited format) of 18 (9 x 2, forwards && backwards).

ABOUT:

The SPEED SHOW exhibition format: Hit an Internet-cafe, rent all computers they have and run a show on them for one night. All art works of the participating artists need to be on-line (not necessarily public) and are shown in a typical browser with standard plug-ins. Performance and life pieces may also use pre-installed communication programs (instant messaging, VOIP, video chat etc). Custom software (except browser add-ons) or off-line files are not permitted.
Any creative physical modification to Internet cafe itself is not allowed. The show is public and takes place during normal opening hours of the Internet cafe/shop. All visitors are welcome to join the opening, enjoy the art (and to check their email.)
