Work from his current exhibition at the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin.
“The New York-based artist Cory Arcangel (* 1978) uses his work to explore the practices and myths that have built up around Internet culture, pop music and experimental music. In processing visual and audio material for his works, he not only uses and adapts available computer programmes but also develops his own programming to do so.
Far from being merely interested in current trends in the entertainment industry and in our everyday use of the Internet, the artist also highlights the rapid obsolescence of technologies and codes. Cory Archangel mixes and matches his works, each time presenting them in a new constellation to each other and applying them in different settings. Depending on the situation, for instance, he combines older and more recent video works with sculptural works, while the material for a music performance may also reappear in a video installation or in an Internet project.” – Hamburger Bahnhof
