For Project Reliquiae, Trade City Production Manager Kris Swick (aka: kswick) is constructing a crowd-sourced, sculptural archive of objects that have been rendered obsolete by technology. He is currently collecting relics and the stories that accompany them from interested participants. The sculpture will be displayed on the Popwagon in the coming months.

From the artist: Exquisite E Pluribus Unum, is equal parts VJ performance, non-partisan political rally, art performance, improvised sound bed and video installation. The title of this performance comes from two places. The first is exquisite corpse, a collaborative game that was originally played by surrealist painters and poets, and e pluribus unum, one of several slogans used by the United States meaning “one out of many.” The two parts of the title are an appropriate description of the process, as the piece endeavors to capture the spirit of exquisite corpse in both its visual and linguistic components. Through the manipulation of the videos, the imagery and language are re-edited and abstracted, often with humorous and unexpected results.
