They Heart a Computer


Rhizome @ The Kitchen

They Heart a Computer :: Tuesday, October 3, 8:00 p.m. @ The Kitchen :: Tickets $8 :: Curated by Lauren Cornell as part of Rhizome’s Tenth Anniversary Festival, this evening of live performances and video screenings explores forms of expression, desire, and anxiety prevalent in a culture increasingly influenced by the Internet. Doo Man Group (made up of Ben Jones, Jessica Ciocci, and Jacob Ciocci of Paper Rad) interweaves live percussion with a dense collage of web-based visual ephemera. Jona Bechtolt (of Yacht) and Claire L. Evans combine music, dance, and PowerPoint to explore the possibilities and fallacies embedded in online communities. In addition, videos by Michael Bell-Smith, JODI, Shana Moulton, Takeshi Murata, and humorist Ze Frank investigate how the Internet amplifies and exaggerates life offline.

512 West 19th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues. Subway: A, C, E to 14th Street; 1 to 18th Street; L to 8th Avenue
