On September 20, 2012, Chicago dirty new media artists jonCates (http://systemsapproach.net/
) and Jon Satrom (http://jonsatrom.com/
) each presented a performance as an intersection with the exhibition "Ex-Static: George Kagan's Radios" at Intuit, the Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art in Chicago, IL. Their performances serve as examples of new media employed as a tactic in support of art rather than "new media art" as a condition represented by infatuation with expensive, new devices.
