Yonge-Dundas Square , Toronto
Year Zero One is pleased to present TRANSMEDIA :29:59, a year long exhibition on the pedestrian level video billboard at Yonge-Dundas Square in downtown Toronto . Launched August 1st 2005, TRANSMEDIA :29:59 features one minute video works 24/7 every half hour on the 29th and 59th minutes.
Featured for the month of March is Myfanwy Ashmore's 'Mario Trilogy' and Kate Armstrong + Michael Tippet's 'Grafik Dynamo'
Myfanwy Ashmore's Mario Trilogy is three hacked versions of the original Super Mario Brothers video games dumped to single channel video output for Transmedia :29:59. 'Mario Trilogy' is part of the 'CONTROLLER: Artists Crack the Game Code' exhibition at InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Centre from February 24 - March 25, 2006.
Kate Armstrong + Michael Tippet's Grafik Dynamo is a net.art work that loads live images from blogs and news sources on the web into a live action comic strip. The work is currently using a feed from LiveJournal. The images are accompanied by narrative fragments that are dynamically loaded into speech and thought bubbles and randomly displayed. The work takes an experimental approach to open ended narrative, positing a new hybrid between the flow of data animating the work and the formal perameter that comprises its structure.
TRANSMEDIA :29:59 is curated by Michael Alstad + Michelle Kasprzak
Year Zero One gratefully acknowledges the Ontario Arts Council, Yonge-Dundas Square and Clearchannel for their support of Transmedia :29: 59
