2004, 4:57 min, b&w, sound

A collaboration between Arcangel and Milwaukee artist Frankie Martin, this work revisits the "rave" dance party phenomenon of the early to mid-1990s. In an act of simulation at once hilarious and incisive, Arcangel and Martin stage what appears to be an amateur, made-for-public-access-television promotional video in which two young men dance awkwardly before a swiftly changing, video-keyed background composed of the sort of black and white, "infinite-fill" patterns that were used in digital painting programs of the 1980s.
