Curated by Eduardo Navas

“The Latency of the Moving Image in New Media” purposefully overlaps the
presentation by TROYANO collective on Art and Digital Culture, to take place
on May 24. The exhibit in combination with the talk are meant to provide a
space for critical reflection on the ongoing development of media culture.

What separates new media from previous media is in part waiting periods that
define public and private experience; whether the download of a file from
the Internet is taking longer than expected, an e-mail message has not been
sent from one server to another for some unknown reason, or a large file is
being rendered in video software like Final Cut Pro for output as a viewable
movie, new media is largely dependent on constant moments of waiting, often
referenced as latency. “The Latency of the Moving Image in New Media”
presents artists who make the most of latency as a crucial element in their
works.

Some of the works included in the exhibition are to be experienced online
while others are to be seen as projections in an actual space, and others
are downloadable interactive projects developed as freeware. The works will
be available for viewing at TELIC in a way that is sensitive to their
original contexts. A website will also be available for viewers outside of
Los Angeles to experience the online projects, and to give information about
those that are only viewable in the art space.
