In an AFC exclusive interview, Ryan Trecartin debuts for the first time to the public. Known for his movies full of tripped out characters drawing much of their language from the Internet, artist Ryan Trecartin is an unlikely developer. He doesn’t know how to program. He spends all his time making movies. This hasn’t changed, though he is the driving creative force behind a new chat-routlette-esque platform conceived last spring in collaboration with tumblr Founder David Karp at Rhizome’s Seven on Seven conference.
