BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

\n\n“Sanity Disobedience for a New F rontier\,” an exhibition that addresses the concept of technological assimi lation in the digital age and its relationship to counter-cultural\, anti-c onformity assumptions. The show alludes to the irrational becoming rational \, a paradox reflected in many characteristics of the digital age. In a sen se\, according to exhibition curator Rod Malin\, the show explores the atti tudinal space between two media pieces\, Bas Jan Ader's short conceptual fi lm piece of 1970 “I'm Too Sad to Tell You\,” in which the artist cries in f ront of a camera after a brief title\, and Chris Crocker's more recent YouT ube phenomenon “Leave Britney Alone.” Although neither of these works appea rs in the show\, they act as psychological signposts or brackets for the ar t on view.

Artists include: Allen Cordell • Tom Moody • Jamie O' Shea • Sophia Peer • Tristan Perich • Meridith Pingree • David Prince • Jan os Stone

“Sanity Disobedience for a New Frontier" pulls together eight unique-minded individuals whose practices parallel those of tech pun dits\, rewiring the brain to deleterious effect. Tristan Perich is driven b y the computational/theoretical limitations of our own brains and of digita l code\; he uses seemingly simple forms to reveal the sensitivity of comple x systems. Tom Moody works in an under-examined form of post-studio art tha t he has called Psychotronic GIFs\, ranging from sincere social commentary to degrading trash. As an advocate of impermanence\, usually in the incongr uous dual persona of "the lumberjack" or "the scientist\," David Prince use s slight mockery\, humor\, and a dose of heroism to challenge current unasc ertainable attributes. Transforming human behavior and traffic patterns\, M eridith Pingree creates a spatial interruption with her reactive sculptures . Particularly strange\, yet stunning with beauty\, the new appropriation p iece by filmmaker and artist Allen Cordell inexplicably justifies the act o f refrigeration of TV dinners. Sophia Peer teams up with Allen Cordell to c reate an infomercial embracing the superior ability of Black Water to creat e a cooler apartment.  Janos Stone creates fractal wall pieces out of drywa ll with relief etching\, resulting in images depicting social interactions through media and matter. If Jamie O’Shea were to boast of his civic duties \, self-deception would be top on his list\, and in doing so he probably wo uldn’t stand on a soapbox but rather create a vortex in time so he can levi tate. 


An exhibition booklet\, Sanity Disobedience\, will be published in conjunction with the show.
