Using Flash animation techniques, they create fast-moving, text-based artworks that are synchronized with original scores. Seemingly an extremely simple format—text on monochromatic backgrounds— YHCHI carefully choreographs texts that weave complex and evocative narratives. The work invokes the genre of film noir, and the hard-boiled literary styles of Raymond Chandler and Phillip K. Dick. Their imaginative, witty and often politically pointed narratives offer layered and compelling stories in which identities are assumed and discarded, and ideologies of all persuasions are held up and questioned. Black on White, Gray Ascending is a new, seven-screen installation co-presented by Rhizome and the New Museum.
