"How To Kill a Vampire," Eryk Salvaggio, 2009

Still frame from "How to Kill a Vampire," a project involving corrupted jpeg files from Vampire films set back into an animation. Above is a still from Vampyr. More to come.

8-Bit: Tree Wave, Glomag

Caught the movie 8-bit at Floating Point last Friday, which was a great overview of the videogame/art scene (particularly in New York) with interviews with superstars of the new mediasphere. But I particularly loved the chiptune section of the documentary.

Tree Wave (video above): Sleep
Glomag: Disorder (Joy Division Cover)

Tree Wave's got an amazing dot-matrix printer rigged up as a synth; Glomag is all Gameboys.

Floating Point 6

Hey y'all. Still alive.

I went to a conference about Video Games. Particularly, how video games can/might/have mature(d). The folks at Turbulence have my write-up over at their networked_culture blog, check it out: "Video Games in search of a Warp Zone."
