TerrorVision:
Spine-Tingling Signals from the EAI Vault
Electronic Arts intermix (EAI) 535 W. 22nd St. 5th Floor
New York, NY 10011

Wednesday, October 28, 2015
6:30 pm

EAI presented a seasonally themed free screening of macabre media digging through the tropes of horror cinema. Although narrative, genre, and lurid popular entertainment may seem an unlikely source of inspiration for artists' media, the grotesque—and specifically its situation within the televisual dimension—has crept into approaches as varied as the diary video, direct-camera performance, film/video hybrid, and datamosh.

By dissecting and reanimating the themes and situations of horror film and television, artists such as Peggy Ahwesh, Michael Smith, Cynthia Maughan, Cecilia Condit, Tony Oursler, and George Kuchar offer a subversive post-mortem on the syntax and politics of the genre while offering a glimpse of the unknown, mysterious, and shocking that lurk at the video signal's outer limits.

EAI presented Warp Drives, a special summer screening of videos driven by science fiction's far-out forms of matter and energy. In videos that ranged from dark stories of doomsday and destruction to speculative meditations on technological evolution and alienation, artists Peggy Ahwesh, Joan Jonas, George Kuchar, Tony Oursler, and Ryan Trecartin confronted the viewer with visions of individuals disconnected from the present or inhabiting alien psychological states.
