Axiom Center for New and Experimental Media is pleased to present Refresh, an exhibition of video and animation work that explores an alternative aesthetic in digital media artwork. Refresh features a group of artists that all ask the viewer to reevaluate our collective definition of digital beauty and the value we place on visual quality in contemporary culture.
Spanning from 8bit and ascii animations to manipulated digital video, this exhibition creates an aesthetic and conceptual dialogue that allows us to question conventions of digital media in our society as well as our relationship to new and past technology. The artists included in this exhibition evoke notions of nostalgia, document unintended artifacts, and experiment with new technologies. In doing so, these artists create a refreshingly alternative digital practice that functions outside of the mainstream aesthetic.
Artists in the show include: Nick Briz, Michelle Ceja, Clint Ennis, Elna Frederick, Doug Goodwin and Rebecca Baron, Duncan Malashock, Rosa Menkman, Andrew Rosinski, and Nicolas Sassoon. This exhibition is curated by Yuri Stone.
