David Crawford’s "SMS" creates the narrative of the momentary encounter.
This work was created to be its distorted mirror. Personal snapshots, harvested by Google using keywords, have been removed from context and through basic digital manipulation new narratives have been imposed on the captured moments. The progression of the film rocks the viewer gently through two augmented perspectives in a series of 20 images. The people and places are unknown but an intimacy is fabricated and connections between unrelated incidents made.
Jess Loseby is an established net and digital artist from the UK. Her primary medium is the internet. She exhibits in national and international projects both on and off line. Her work ranges from small and intimate online installations to large scale digital projections and video.
Loseby’s unashamedly low-tech net installations and video build comparisons of the network and digitality in its frustrations, attention to triviality and repetition as absurdly compatible to the female domestic routine. Themes dealing with individuality and cyber- identity recur frequently as do the faces of her three children who seem to be bound up irrevocably with her digital self.
Jess Loseby is young(ish), has three children, one husband and no time!
