BANNER REPEATER ARCHIVE OF ARTISTS' PUBLISHING + LOW ANIMAL SPIRIT
WITH ISAAC OLVERA: THE DEATH OF PAPER at MUSEO UNIVERSITARIO DEL CHOPO, MEXICO CITY.
Exhibition: 16th April - 28th June 2015.
Banner Repeater presents a selection of works from the Banner Repeater Archive of Artists' Publishing at Museo Universitario Del Chopo, Mexico City.
In tandem with the selection of Artists’ Publishing, a new installation of Low Animal Spirits by Ami Clarke and Richard Cochrane is presented at Museo Universitario Del Chopo.
Low Animal Spirits by Ami Clarke and Richard Cochrane is an algorithm driven by real time data, scripted as a live onscreen score and audio work with automated ‘readers’. Taking its cue from the oft-mentioned loss of the referent in both language and the economy, it is a live model of high frequency trading, dealing in words sourced from global news feeds for virtual ‘profit’, whilst speculating on their usage. The analysis produces new phenomena in the form of headlines generated with the help of Natural Language processing algorithms, tweeting live from Mexico City throughout the exhibition period @LowAnimalSpirit.
Isaac Olvera, whose kind invitation brought Banner Repeater, and Ami Clarke, to the residency at Museo del Chopo - presents a new work in tandem with Low Animal Spirits: The Death of Paper - an enquiry into a months worth of Mexico City newspaper publishing on paper. The work has been developed over the residency period, where Low Animal Spirits and the Banner Repeater Archive has provided a locus for discussion through workshops and seminars with an open invitation to all.
A publication developed with contributors to the seminars and workshops, will be published by Banner Repeater and Museo Universitario Del Chopo, later in the exhibition period.
