ICA digital studio
Animation work + interactive processes
by Sissu Tarka
20 Jan - 20 Feb 2005
PRIVATE VIEW: Thurs 20 Jan 6 - 8 pm
Tarka's background is in Fine Art practice. D\_H H\_D will present animation and interactive work in a non-productive and imaginative new media site. Deriving from found objects and imagery, the installation of moving images appropriates minimalist aesthetics and combines them with animation’s subversive aspects. Emergency pictures from newspapers, or an iconic image of Branson, re-appear digitally manipulated as heterogeneous material. In the strange combination of everyday encounters and new technologies the format of the work refers to a kind of domesticated technology (homedata).
As part of D\_H H\_D Tarka launches the CD WICKED. A limited edition is available.
