Analogous Projects
Since 2009
Works in United States of America

Complexity theory is not new to art or to our culture. It migrated from computer science and biology to economics and art and, with the advent of the world wide web, it invaded our collective subconscious. Analogous seeks to support complexity-driven art and artists playing under this conceptual umbrella of "Interaction Art". Progress occurs by metaphor and analogy: Their hope is (by bringing together people and projects irrespective of media and genre) to enable philosophical crosstalk.

Analogous events and performances have been reviewed in The Wire, Make Magazine, Time Out New York, and The Village Voice. They received a Village Voice Best-of-NYC Award in October 2008 for "Best Arts Organization Centered Around Recycling". For more information about Analogous and current Analogous projects, visit

NEW YORK  --  Analogous Projects is pleased to announce a new Analogous Project!  Epic Doom: Black Metal City is a generative sound- and video-installation illustrating societal ills as emergent phenomena.  Epic Doom will debut as a work-in-progress at the 2009 Play With Fire Festival on November 15th.

Epic Doom utilizes the familiar and extreme black-metal aesthetic to allude to modern society's shared sense of panic.  This immersive installation processes the physical actions of visitors and passersby and re-presents those actions in real time, providing illustrations of human agency and diffusion of responsibility. 

Epic Doom: Black Metal City will debut as a work-in-progress at the Play With Fire Festival Closing Party, taking place at 1717 Troutman Street in Queens.  Video performances will begin at 4:00 p.m. on November 15, 2009.  (Visit the festival site for event information and performance times.)

Admission will be free and open to the public.
