Three Junctures Of Remix

Link: http://gallery.calit2.net/

The exhibition THREE JUNCTURES OF REMIX features the art of Mark Amerika 
& Chad Mossholder, Arcangel Constantini, Giselle Beiguelman, and Elisa 
Kreisinger, a group of international artists who have explored and 
reflect on the implications of the creative act of remixing since the 
concept became popular beginning in the nineties. The art works 
crossover and explore three junctures (moments of production) of remix: 
the pre-digital/analog; the digital; and the post-digital which 
developed in chronological order, but after their initial manifestation, 
became intertwined and currently are often reintroduced in conjunction 
to inform the aesthetics of remix as a creative act in art practice. The 
exhibition is curated to reflect on how computing has enabled people to 
recombine pre-existing material with unprecedented efficiency that is 
relatively affordable just about everywhere information-based technology 
is widely used. This has affected how local and global communities view 
their cultural production, from politics to the arts.

Eduardo Navas researches the crossover of art and media in culture. His 
production includes art & media projects, critical texts, and curatorial 
projects. He has presented and lectured about his work internationally. 
Navas researches and teaches in the School of Visual Arts at The 
Pennsylvania State University, PA. He also lectures in the program of 
Culture and Media at Eugene Lang College, and MA Media Studies at The 
New School for Public Engagement, NY. Navas is a 2010-12 Post Doctoral 
Fellow in the Department of Information Science and Media Studies at the 
University of Bergen, Norway, where he remains an affiliated researcher. 
He received his Ph.D. from the Program of Art History, Theory, and 
Criticism in The Department of Visual Arts at the University of 
California, San Diego. He is the author of Remix Theory: The Aesthetics 
of Sampling.

Mark Amerika is an internationally renowned “remix artist” who not only 
reconfigures existing cultural content into new forms of art, but also 
mashes up the mainstream media forms and genres that most commercial 
artists work in. His artwork includes published cult novels, pioneering 
works of Internet art, digital video, surround sound museum 
installations, large scale video projections in public spaces, live 
audio-visual/VJ performance, and most recently, a series of 
feature-length “foreign films” shot with different image capturing 
devices in various locations throughout the world. He is currently a 
Professor of Art and Art History at the University of Colorado at 
Boulder and Principal Research Fellow in the Faculty of Humanities and 
Social Science at La Trobe University. His Internet art can found at his 
website, markamerika.com

Chad Mossholder is a sound artist working in art installations, film, 
music and video games. His critically acclaimed and experimental

has released six full-length albums as well as numerous mini-albums, and 
EP’s on such labels as Hefty Records (Chicago), Bip-Hop Records 
(Marseille France) and Ghostly Records (Ann Arbor). His live 
audio/visual performances have attracted audiences in Europe, Japan and 
North America. Chad's sound collaborations with artist Mark Amerika,

many others. She was Curator of Nokia Trends (2007 and 2008), and the 
Brazilian participation in ISEA Ruhr (2009) among many others.

Arcángel Constantini produces work of a marked ludic-experimental 
nature, strongly influenced by the fortuitous and chaotic processes of 
the city as reflected in the systematic use of glitch aesthetics. His 
work and artistic practice explore the dynamics of visual and sound 
works, low-tech installations, propaganda action, visual/sound 
performance, hardware hacking, physical computing, installation, sound 
art and net art. As an independent curator, he has been developing the 
program of Cyberlounge, Museo Rufino Tamayo since 2001, and was part of 
the curatorial team for Transitio Mx electronic art festival. He is a 
member of dorkbot Mexico D.F. council. He has received several awards, 
among them the Prize for Best Multimedia Work at Vidarte, Video and 
Electronic Arts Festival, CENART (Mexico City, 1999), and received first 
prize for Atari-noise at Interference Festival France 2000. In 2002 
Constantini received the Rockefeller/ MacArthur grant for new media.

Elisa Kreisinger is a video artist based in New York City. Her latest 
work includes remixing Mad Men, Sex & the City, and the Real Housewives 
into feminists and lesbians. Her work has been featured in galleries and 
festivals throughout the US and Europe including Museum of Film and TV 
(Berlin), MIP Cube (France) and SxSW. A prominent voice in the remix and 
online video community since 2006, Elisa speaks on university campuses, 
including USC, MIT and Harvard, and at industry events throughout the 
world. Her success engaging female audiences online has led to 
collaborations with NBC, Paramount Pictures, Art 21, Eileen Fisher, 
Women Make Movies and the Women’s Media Center. An advocate and 
activist, Elisa works with Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and 
Society, American University’s Center for Social Media (where she is 
currently a Media Fellow) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation to 
continue to pave the way for a remix-friendly web that acknowledges 
creators’ rights under US Copyright Law’s Fair Use provision.
