This is an exhibition of contemporary experimental screen-works that explore new approaches and styles in an era dominated by online video, convergent media and hypercapitalism. The artists exhibited are established screen arts practitioners that are responding specifically to that brief. As the exhibition name suggests, the works are both playful and profound, challenging established notions of low and high screen culture. The works exhibited explore datamoshing, vaporwave, darkwave, witch house, glitch aesthetic, performance and new materiality.
Artists include Usama Alshaibi, Anthony Antonellis, Dario Alva, Katherine Berger, Chris Bors, Ryszard Dabek, John Di Stefano, Mr Doodleburger, Scott Fitzpatrick, Adam Geczy, Justin Harvey, Shaun Hay, Harley Ives, Scott Kieran, Kevin Khachan, Tony Lawrence, Tom Loveday, Pavel Samokhvalov, and Emma Varker.
