Work of Sub-Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction
The vortex creates, the chaos permeates. In the material space, art objects are calculations of the iterations of the vortex -- a vortex that uses the chaos as a parallax to enmesh ideas, patterns, and emotions. With the devolution of the electronic environment, the vortex is reaching a point where it will be free from the chaos to realize immersions into the machinations of the delphic space. Work of Sub-Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction contains 10 minimal java engines (also refered to as "shopbots") that enable the user to make indigo-colored audio/visual compositions.

Bill Codding's work investigates the nuances of modulations through the use of stopframe motion and close-ups which emphasize the Mechanical nature of digital media. Codding explores abstract and teleological scenery as motifs to describe the idea of hyper-real space. Using flaggelant loops, non-linear narratives, and slow-motion images as patterns, Codding creates meditative environments which suggest the expansion of time...
