IX by H3XEN @ DEADTECH
I've been lazy with my blogging. I went to this show on May 10.
H3X3N is a group of Computer Witches who have built an enchanted cube
that casts magical spells on computers. This cube, called IX, is a
New Media Artwork that will be shown at DEADTECH, an art and
technology center and gallery in Chicago, this Saturday May 10. The
IX cube casts spells on Windows, Macintosh and Linux computers,
hacking and hexing these operating systems. IX combines traditional
stage magic tricks and irony as elements of Hacker culture to create
an Interactive Installation and Software Art project. IX has been
exhibited previously at the Interactivos? exhibition at the Media Lab
Madrid in Madrid, Spain.
H3X3N, a collaborative computer witchcraft club from Chicago, Mexico
City Mexico and Linz Austria, is currently composed of Mark Beasley,
Sandra Rosas Ridolfi, jake elliott, tamas kemenczy, Alex Inglizian,
Nina Wenhart and jonCates.
