Unsubscribe #3: Glitch Envy (2010)

Junk mail detritus forms a handicraft salute to new media in this 16mm film about the materiality of video. When shown live, audience members are encouraged to multi-task during the piece: to vocalize the blips, bleeps, and mechanical grunts of modern technology; to test out ringtones on cellphones; or to surf the internet. Attempting to illustrate our multi-tabbed contemporary consciousness, the film asks the viewers to barely pay attention – mimicking the experience of the internet in a celluloid-projected setting and calling attention to the event of viewing (or even non-viewing) itself.
