ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Information permeates society today in unprecedented magnitudes and methods. "Metadataphile: The Collapse of Visual Information" features sixteen international artists who transform and recontextualize data into art that make socio-political statements. These artists appropriate, hack, pirate, and reorder metadata from objects, events and cultural phenomena into film, installation, painting, photography, sculpture, and sound.

ALSO FEATURING: LOST LEVELS v.2010
The Lost Levels project features multiple artist re-interpretations of Cory Arcangel’s infamous, "Super Mario Bros. Clouds" (2002). Arcangel is known for hacking the video game by taking apart the cartridge and replacing a chip with one that he modified. The outcome was presented in single-channel projection revealing only the roaming white clouds on a blue sky. The artists in this project counteracted Cory’s hack with their own re-hack of the “clouds” concept. Participating artists: Georg Burwick, leadingzeros, Douglas McCulloh and Lee Tusman.
