LET’S GET TESTED

Playfully adapting public space into personal games, these makers look at architecture, videogames, biology, schoolwork, history and even their own memories with fresh eyes and twitchy fingers. Often sincere, sometimes willfully naive, they project a new optimism and the ability to self-amuse and re-imagine.

ADOLESCENT BOYS, AND LIVING ROOMS

These audios + videos are forcibly lonely and nihilistically sweet. They’ll pin you down and slowly drip spit on you, whether you’re practicing crossovers on a suburban driveway or pile-drivers in a backyard wrestling ring. I’ve got the moves if you’ve got the skills (together we could make a great team).
