Last year, Famed Rhizome commenter and artist Curt Cloninger asked nine artists to make work that responds the best video ever; Andrian Belew’s “Big Electric Cat”. The project, dubbed Wonder Cabinet of the Big Electric Cat, was for a pavilion at The Wrong biennial and was conceived because Cloninger believes this video still blows away much retro-glitch made today. We agree.
While The Wrong has shut down for the next two years, the website for this particular project gloriously still exists. We’re highlighting LOVID’s animated cat gif above, but there are a lot of worthy projects to check out here by artists such as Margaret Penney, Katie Bush, Myron Campbell Laura Brothers, Francoise Gamma, Doxa Phloxa + Glenn Young and Kevin Carey + Shawne Michaelain Holloway. This is a site you definitely want to click through for.
