their ease of set-up and excellent presentation.
I am proud to have had their work at EyeWash and
would happily invite them again.
Goldberg is a dedicated abstractionist, designing
and performing on frameworks for improvisatory animation
using laptops in club and party situations. He wants your
palms to sweat, your pores to open, your pupils to dilate.
He is a time junkie, in a destructive fashion, exploring
the mutability of time through computers, and investigate
the shattering of temporal flow. Teaming up with electronic
musician Todd Polenberg aka Habitrail. This duo’s
audio visual synergy is featured on the EyeWash 2 DVD.

sounds of classical musicians Arts
in Motion. This Professor of New Media at the University
of Maine is not just sitting on his scholastic laurels,

a balance between the new media of today and its place
with the classic arts; his collaboration with the Philadelphia
ensemble is no exception. There is even rumor of a collaborating
dancer to round out the set, merging music, visual and
Cook (bunniboi) and Kat Black (kattyb) are the VJzoo crew.
They live in Perth, Western Australia, the most remote
capital city on the planet, so you have to make your own
fun there. Their visual style ranges from retro to abstract
to rough and edgy, and use a lot of archival movies, grungy
hand-held industrial-looking footage and scratch and flare
type effects. Currently on an international tour through
Europe and Asia, they round out the continents by making
a special stop in NYC for a show at EyeWash. Zoo, thanks
for coming all this way and making us sooo internacionale!
