    Hi Jess,

    I am super interested in reading this post - but on the Rhizome site it is all marked up with visible tags. Is there any way you could resend without the formatting for those of us who view posts online, as opposed to via email?

    How Did I Get Here ?
    Curated by Brian Reed
    Opening Friday 20th May 6pm - 9pm
    Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd May 12 noon - 6 pm

    ----------------------------------------------------------
    E:VENT is pleased to present 'How Did I Get Here ?' a showcase that brings
    together four artists, who through the use of digital media express a
    personal, social or political commentary. The common thread between the
    works is a sense of mortality expressed with the use of parody and
    absurdity as a critical tool.

    Leon Barker
    Work in progress
    A sense of danger and the reality of physical harm prevail the sculptural
    works of Leon Baker. Here he exhibits a work in progress, a kinetic
    sculpture exploring gesture through action and reaction. ~~~ Tobie
    Kerridge Life Event Using data retrieved every minute from the Justice
    Department web-site, Life Event tracks the final days of Gary Lynn
    Sterling on death row in Texas. When the execution of the prisoner is
    reported on the site, the object will turn on. Brine shrimp ­ or Sea
    Monkeys ­ are injected into the salt water, a pump and light source are
    triggered, and the second syringe will feed the organisms periodically.
    Until then Life Event is mechanically and biologically dormant.~~~

    Control
    A series of films showing an individual absorbed in an activity; a bike
    ride, a console gaming session , waiting for a letter to be delivered. By using 2 cameras these activities become split across 2 frames, dividing the subject from the object of their attention. This division is artificial, there are moments of synthesis and absorption as the
    individual becomes fused with their object-world. ~~~

    Jess Loseby
    Andum
    Jess Loseby takes her personal domestic environment as reference for her
    exploration and fascination of borderlands and 'beautiful seams' between
    the ubiquitous worlds of computing and the 'real' (domestic). The use of a low-fi approach to new media encapsulates the female domestic routine synonymous with repetition and triviality. ~~~

    Dallas Seitz
    Proteus Syndrome
    Proteus Syndrome is the rare genetic disorder that
    inflicted Joseph Carey Merrick, commonly known as the Elephant Man. The
    physical effects of the disorder become part of Dallas Seitz gothic horror lexicon in his continued self-colonization that remains at the centre of his practice. ~~~

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~

    If you would prefer not to receive invitations from E:VENT please let us
    know. If you know someone who would be interested to come to our events
    please ask them to email root@eventnetwork.org.uk. Thanks!
