Select Media Fest 7 - night 2
Tonight begins night 2 of Select Media Fest. Last night was a lot of fun. I may have lost some hearing but it was worth it. TRS-80 and video genius Eric Fensler flew in from L.A. to perform. Live drumming paired with electronic beats and video projections equaled a mini dance party. We were partying 'till 2 am. The art on hand was really well designed. Large scale work from artists and designers around the world presenting info in visually interesting ways. Logan Bay's installation had some pretty trippy and bleak pages from the old Choose Your Own Adventure series imbedded in it. I enjoyed the green laser beam pentagram in the dark basement as well.
Lumpen DVD #11 will be released tonight. Here's the info from their site....
