NOW SHOWING

Check out featured artists in the new issue of Wigged.net:

Humberto Ramirez's HATE.
Ramirez writes, "This is a video in which the cultural dynamics of 
hatred are explored through a series of talking heads and monologues. 
The video seeks to denaturalize a condition in which the potential 
solidarity amongst different people is subverted by notions of 
nationalism, race, gender, class etc.
By problematizing what seems to remain hidden or at least unspoken 
this work seeks to provoke a conversation." United States. 2002.

Agricola de Cologne's Never Wake Up.
Based on the artist's poem of the same name.  The poem/movie uses 
some fundamental images: The "soldier" is metaphor for the human 
individual.  "War" is a metaphor for life, respectively the fights of 
everyday day life; and the "veteran of war" is the human being who 
cannot rid himself of the shadows of the past.  Never Wake Up 
addresses the loss of identity where the soldiers become distorted 
and veterans have difficulty with reintegration into post-war 
society. Germany. 2001.

Jimpunk's www.nowar.nogame.org.
Jimpunk ironically states that in his piece www.nowar.nogame.org, 
"everything is under control."  However get ready for a nerve-racking 
event.  At first you may think that your computer has been infected 
with a virus.  But don't worry, it's not.  Fasten your seatbelt as 
you embark on a mind-blowing journey that is a masterful mixture of 
image and sound.  Kudos to jimpunk! France. 2001.

Daniel Young's NewZoid.
NewZoid is a work of generative art. It plays with the most common 
information form of our time - the headline. NewZoid continuously 
collects the daily news, tears it apart, chops it up and endlessly 
reassembles the pieces into absurd, funny, shocking and 
thought-provoking headlines. The Site has been operating on its own 
since April 8, 2001. United States. 2001.

Dinorah de Jes=FAs Rodriguez & Gustavo Matamoros's L'Anatomie du D=E9sir. 
This assemblage of erotic images, found and damaged footage, and 
handcrafted 16mm film was originally projected onto the torso of 
Butoh artist Helena Thevenot as part of the one-hour collaborative 
piece "The Anatomy of Desire."  A tribute to biophysical impulses, 
the video version synchronizes the film to its original score by 
Gustavo Matamoros. United States. 2002.

Thomas Swiss and Seth Thompson's In the Woods.
In the Woods, a collaborative effort between Thom Swiss and Seth 
Thompson examines the ideas of memory, aging and loss.  The result of 
the collaboration suggests the way language (in this case a poem by 
Swiss) can be re-represented and changed by images (a film by 
Thompson). United States. 2002.
