My Question...


that depends, do u mean "grounded" as-in mentally and emotionally stable; admirably sensible, realistic, and unpretentious, or do u mean "grounded" as-in the common or ordinary people, especially as contrasted with the leadership or elite of a political party, social organization, etc., or do u mean "grounded" as-in a penalty inflicted on an offender ( usually a child ); to be restricted to your home; to not be allowed to partake in certain acts.

i think in all these cases the answer is would be some version of "interesting", as-in engaging or exciting and holding the attention or curiosity; arousing a feeling of interest :-)

@alexmyers, don't forget about squaresquare ( Alex Halbert + David Musgrave + Sam Mewton) [ Chicago ] who've been doing some really rad live PS2/XBox bending the last couple years [here's live footage from a show I organized @the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago >> https://vimeo.com/56957200]

++ also Joseph "Yolk" Chiocchi's 'yokalyzer' script for doing just that : http://yo.yolk.cc/work/yolkalyzer [ Chicago ]

++ also hellocatfood (aka Antonio Roberts ) [Birmingham, UK] and Andrew Benson [Los Angeles] do generative work that formally overlaps

EVENT

Chicago Dirty New Media [Round Robin]


Dates:
Tue Oct 16, 2012 18:00 - Tue Oct 16, 2012

Location:
Chicago, Illinois
United States of America

Join us for this real-time audio and video performance event which celebrates the Dirty New Media movement in Chicago. Dirty New Media artists utilize hacked electronics and improvisation to create works of art that are so wrong they’re right. Performances take place in the bottom level of the museum’s garage and start at 6pm, with setup starting at 4 pm. Feel free to stop in and chat with folks as they prep their circuits and setup. This event is organized in collaboration with Nick Briz, an artist currently based in Chicago.

this will be a ‘round-robin’, a format borrowed from the Baltimore music scene, where performers set-up at the same time around the perimeter of the venue (in this case the museum’s garage) and perform short sets one after another (around the circle) passing the baton (or cables in this case) from one to the next.
