Ritualistic Spaces of Media: Eric Souther in Person

August 10th, 2016
@ Squeaky Wheel
$7 General | Free for members

Squeaky Wheel welcomes a presentation of works by 2016 Workspace Resident Eric Souther!

Religion and ritual can be used as a lens to humanize data and reveal the subliminal effects of media on our world-view. The ritualistic spaces of media can help us to discover new possibilities for understanding the digital systems in which we live and participate. Selections for this screening include Myth of the Masses, Search Engine Vision “Christ”, Search Engine Vision “Buddha”, and Search Engine Vision “ISIS”.


Eric Souther is a video and new media artist who explores the ritualistic spaces of media and develops interactive systems for real-time manipulation of time-based media. His work has been featured nationally and internationally at venues such as the Museum of Art and Design, NYC, Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, NY and the ART DATA LAB, Beijing. His work has been screened in The Outcasting: Fourth Wall Festival, Grangetown, UK, Cronosfera Festival, Alessandria, Italy, and the Galerija 12 New Media Hub, Belgrade, Serbia. He received his M.F.A. in Electronic Integrated Arts from Alfred University. Currently he is an Assistant Professor of New Media at Indiana University South Bend.
