Carl Burgess | Oliver Laric

During April 2009 and as part of the Digital Broadway programme, I presented the work of two individual and independent artists who's work is created primarily to operate online. The work was presented as casual complimentary presentation as installation works around the public spaces at Broadway.

Growing and seething, imploding worlds and eerie characters forever trapped in a smile. Carl Burgess creates shorts that present a new reading of the digital non-spaces in which they exist, collapse and reform. Carl’s work was presented as interventions within the corridors and stairwells at Broadway.

Primarily platformed on the internet, Oliver Laric doesn’t manipulate but more redirects existing popular media tools to craft new narratives. In "787 Cliparts," Laric has patiently married 787 clipart images to make a mesmerising 1 minute looping short, whilst presented on the façade glass screen, "(Down Up)" is a two-channel video work that uses youtube clips to explore the hypnotic 'before and after' temporality of Christian baptism.
