Presented at Made in NY Media Center by IFP, this show features Frances Wang's peaceful street scene manipulated by geolocation, Yuxi Cao's distortion of an iconic 900 year old Chinese painting using Beijing's air quality data, Kurt Ralske's poetic rendering of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, Matthew Ostrowski's re-imagination of Koyaanisqatsi as a colorspace, Eva Davidova's mixing of spaces and bodies to create uncertainties, and Emilio Vavarella / Daniel Belquer highlighting topics and keywords of all the memories collected by their drone project.

Blatant Lies is a battle of analog and digital sounds as Hans Tammen and Adam Rokhsar use modular synths and the sensors hidden in smart phones to make a new form of dance music.


Shadow Puppies is a cutting edge trio which conjures rich, complex, and entrancing worlds of electronic sound and vision in real-time. Nick Didkovsky and Hans Tammen stretch the boundaries of tabletop electric guitar with an arsenal of objects, electronics, and homebrew computer software, while Kurt Ralske interactively captures and processes video using digital technology of his own design. The result is an uninterrupted journey through sonic eruptions, video hallucinations, and aggressive, entrancing mediascapes.





As part of 1997's documenta city program, Michael Vorfeld and Hans Tammen created an immersive visual and sound installation in the Kassel planetarium, using the computer-controlled Zeiss 1015 planetarium projector, set against low-tech light sources such as incandescent lamps, fluorescent light, neon light, light boxes, torches, and slide projectors; and a surround sound performance created with a wide array of mechanical preparations (including brushes, small stones, electric fans, cigarette lighters, Ebows and chopsticks) from guitars, and a theremin.
