PLEASE RSVP (WRITE "OSCAR NODAL" IN THE SUBJECT LINE - LIMITED SEATING)
Join us for a in-depth presentation on glitch aesthetics in machinima production by Mexican artist Oscar Nodal, whose work Sleepy Existence (2014) is currently on display in the RECORD section of GAME VIDEO/ART. A SURVEY.
Born in Juarez, Mexico in 1986, Oscar Nodal is a visual artist who engages with new media technology, synthetic imagery, and simulated environments. As critic Emmanuel Villareal writes, “Nodal's work by moments examines video purely as an electronic technology of signal processing and transmission that shares these properties with other electronic media, notably television. But most of all, portrays video as a medium in its own right by articulating specific media language in a step-by-step construction of a videographic-aesthetic vocabulary, at times, successfully establishing an emergent semiotic system by which video becomes a medium that can be truly distinguished from alternative media.”
