Join film festival prankster Ben Coonley and internet artist Marisa
Olson for an evening of "ubiquitous media:" PowerPoint presentation
send-ups, subversive Blogging, pro-sporting simulacra, and a host of
new media topsy-turveydom. By appropriating amateur technologies to
create innovative and amusing forms of entertainment, Ben and Marisa
give us a slice of "life as art," just maybe pointing out that the
kind of life our culture leads brings forth absurd new ways of
experiencing it. The program will consist of some never-
before-screened gems and a two-channel collaborative installation
specifically created for Monkey Town.
