Documentation of my work in the "Fresh NY" show at Threshold Art Space, Perth, Scotland. Eleven of the 22 screens are shown. Photos by exhibition curator Anne Barlow. The OptiDisc GIF below is reduced; clicking on image shows the actual size (of the GIF--the screens are much larger).

That looks really fabulous.
I love how it it gets good through repetition... nice work.
^ get's good through repetition?
Looks hot, very corporate in the best possible sense... airports come to mind. Can you put up some other images for a room perspective? Good stuff.
Thanks. The 22 screens is normally used for wave effects, cascading imagery, and other video dramatics that, yes, could be very corporate. There is a building near Times Sq--Lehman Bros?--that uses this type of display with images of people in business suits marching robotically (mock-ironic Orwellian), helicopter pans of clouds and mountain vistas (mock-ironic Leni Riefenstahl), etc.
Does "mock-ironic Leni Riefenstahl" or "mock-ironic Orwellian" actually mean that there is really no irony involved and that Orwelliian, Riefenstahl type themes and imagery (totalitarianism, fascism) are being promoted with a wink and a nudge?
Interesting question Thor, but remember that Orwell himself was not a fascist. (Leni R. was, but she's a problem of a different magnitude)
cow-punk was a matter of commandeering back the peoples music (back from the GOP (grand old oprey). i dont see much irony in that list. also see graham parsons. no irony and true to country but no redneck. willie was king of the long hair rednecks. no redneck, no irony in willie but some (not most) real rednecks (david allan coe, hank jr, etc.) in that crew. even the hag turned his act around. no irony, real country, x-redneck.
For clarity: I know Orwell was not a fascist, I could have phrased that better. Thanks Bill, I love Merle & Willie all the way around. I was referring to every-day average-joe people punkeys (In Dallas) who actually became real live rednecks, with no irony, even though they started off ironic. The process took a few years by my observation. I was not referring to actual performers. Thank you for the thoughts.
The Dallasites I imagine you speak of were rednecks from the start.
