Cyber Beach Party is a celebration of e-waste. Techno-trash just has to end up somewhere, what better place than Cyber Beach with host Bibi Brioche, co-host Selexa and the danseparc dansers? Using laptops as go-go platforms and routers as beach balls, the gang parties until the break of digital dawn.
nanobites is the other side of the electro-dawn, emerging in the window at sunset. Feeling besieged by micro-critters and based on real posts from birdmites.org, characters go to great lengths to eradicate these pests of undetermined, possibly man-made origin: move from town to town, rant at the government,perform self-surgery, encase themselves in layers of layers of nylon and find many uses for Epsom salts. Contributors to nanobites: Karla Milosevich, Maria Coomber, Gary Fembot, Chris E. Vargas, Akiko Carver, Johnny Ray Huston and Skye Thorstenson.
Screening of complete program with the artist, Friday, July 11 at ATA. 8pm, $7.
Closing party Sunday, July 27 at ATA.
