For Immediate Release
Generative Art Project is proud to present denial.of.service / Oct 5 – 28, 2018
Our first denial.of.service solo exhibition will feature six generative videos and twenty-one digital prints. An award winning creator and performer, d.o.s has a large and devoted global following both live and online.
The sophisticated use of technology, loaded imagery, and rhythmic compositions are hallmarks of the d.o.s style. Using math, myth, code, software, human psychology, and alien aesthetics the videos slice through cultural barriers and trigger the amygdala releasing a cascade of emotions and memories.
Though the delivery is direct, nothing about the work is obvious or easy. It takes weeks, sometimes months, to construct the musical, scientific, political, and cultural references that drive the overarching concepts. The abstract works defy simple explanation and must be experienced over time to fully appreciate.
Onryõ means vengeful spirit and the video uses imagery at once ancient and futuristic. The piece considers the fears and or hopes that the injustices done to the innocent will return to haunt and destroy the perpetrators.
Red.Cross Red.Crescent is an unflinching anti-war piece that begins with lusty vengeance and a theatrical display of destruction that quickly turns on itself hammering home humanities deluded sense of righteousness and our collective failure to rein in uncritical conformism, and predatorily behavior.
Contour & Shape features a rough figure that resembles a classic Greek statue being torn apart by smooth, sharp wedges, then left to rot and drift into the abyss. The work suggests in part the loss of history and individualism to impersonal technology.
Unknown.Archetype – Tripp, with its edgy sensuality, cellular geometry, and a heart-pounding beat, the video veers from dreamy arousal to calculated reality and offers up an enlightened study of desire.
Rawtekk - Here’s to Them is a dystopian love story that uses confrontational and suffocating illusions overlaid with reaction-diffusion formulas that accentuate the turbulent passions of pursuit and commitment.
Kero/Gotshell | Perindsor is a study in rhythmic abstraction. The video’s stimulating, kinetic elegance exemplifies the strange beauty being discovered and harnessed by innovative generative masters like denial.of.service.
