Cory Arcangel

January 21, 2010

Cory Arcangel works with appropriated media, including video games, exploring reconfigurations of material from popular culture. For example, to create “Super Mario Clouds”, Arcangel hacked a Mario Brothers game cartridge and removed all content except the clouds.  In “A Couple Thousand Short Films About Glenn Gould”, Arcangel used clips from Youtube to reconstruct Glenn Gould’s famous performance of Bach’s Goldberg Variations.

Jason Salavon

January 21, 2010

Jason Salavon’s work offers a different way of looking at the familiar while the processes of its creation operate between conventional media genres.  Using source material ranging from U.S. census and shoe production data to Playboy centerfolds and the IKEA catalog, Salavon codes custom computer software to process, manipulate, and visualize preexisting media in new forms.
