Year Zero One is pleased to announce the last installment of TRANSMEDIA :29:59, the final month of 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 July is Collin Zipp's 'Niverville, MB 08.04' and John Greyson's ''14.3 SECONDS'.
Collin Zipp's Niverville, MB 08.04 explores the presence of technology within our environments. The creation process begins by subjecting the video's digital information to physical defacement by using various methods. The final product is then captured and edited to create an altered digital environment.
John Greyson 14.3 SECONDS: During the 2003 war, U.S. planes bombed the Iraqi Film Archive. 14.3 seconds of celluloid were salvaged from the wreckage. If you slow them down by 23.8%, they last a minute.
Launched August 1st 2005, TRANSMEDIA :29:59 is a year long exhibition presented by Year Zero One. TRANSMEDIA :29:59 is curated by Michael Alstad and Michelle Kasprzak.
