“Cracked Ray Tube” is a real-time audiovisual installation and performative piece by artists #JamesConnolly and #KyleEvans that explores the latent materiality of analog video through custom-built digital instrumentation interfaced with the hacked communication networks of both analog video transmission and VGA video signals. This multimedia performance “investigates the cathode ray tube not as a dead object of the past, but rather as a symbol of the current material culture of obsolescence; a device that is capable of being revived and hybridized with digital tools to generate genuinely new aesthetic experiences that rouse our residual memories of the analog era while undermining our aesthetic fetishization of the new.” These 2015 participating #CurrentsNewMedia artists are today’s #artistsoftheday ….see more artists on our website!
LAST TWO SPOTS FOR TOMORROW!!! SAIC Faculty and Roger Brown Collection's Assistant Curator, James Connolly undermines the interfaces of consumer electronics and digital structures to liberate their latent audio and video materialities in videos, performances, and installations.
Join him for this weekend's ESS Lab Workshop, where participants will hack video cables to bend audio into video, enabling the real-time creation of visuals through any audio file or digitally composed signal.
Friends for over 45 years but apparently still have things to discuss. I’d like to think that we were discussing world issues but more likely the pros and cons of Lebron going to LA!#bestfriend#jamesconnolly#deepindiscussion
If you strike at, imprison, or kill us, out of our prisons or graves we will still evoke a spirit that will thwart you, and perhaps, raise a force that will destroy you! We defy you! Do your worst!
Thank you very much to everyone who has helped with Connolly150.
Our events & our inclusive, anti-sectarian approach have been a huge success.
After an intense few months I’m taking a few days off social media while we work on our evaluation framework.
"La causa obrera és la causa irlandesa. La causa irlandesa és la causa obrera. Ambdues són indissociables" "El treballador és l'esclau de la societat capitalista; la treballadora és l'esclava d'aquest esclau"
Ahir, 5 de juny, es van complir 150 anys del naixement del revolucionari socialista irlandès #JamesConnolly . Connolly va ser executat el 12 de maig de 1916 per haver participat en la insurrecció independentista de l'Alçament de Pasqua.
Tiocfaidh ár lá!
"'Those who live by the sword shall perish by the sword' say the Scriptures, and it may well be that in the progress of events the working class of Ireland may be called upon to face the stern necessity of taking the sword (or rifle) against the capitalist class..." happy birthday James Connolly. Irish Republican and revolutionary was born on this day. #ireland 🍀 #jamesconnolly
James Connolly was born this day 150 years ago. "If you remove the English army tomorrow and hoist the green flag over Dublin Castle, unless you set about the organization of the Socialist Republic your efforts would be in vain. England would still rule you. She would rule you through her capitalists, through her landlords, through her financiers, through the whole array of commercial and individualist institutions she has planted in this country". #Connolly150#JamesConnolly
