Florida Creatives is now hosting a monthly Show and Tell on the 1st Tuesday of every month at Urban ReThink. July 5th will be the third event, and we are always looking for new participants - anyone is welcome to attend.

Here is a Facebook video of Nathan's Show and Tell - a multi-dimensional pendulum installation with three screens, and three controls, two for parameters, and one to rotate the graphic in the center.

Akira may be the most well known Japanese animation imported to the US. Even after 23 years its animation is striking and it has an extraordinary score from 芸能山城組 (Geinō Yamashirogumi) to match. Most of us have only seen Akira dubbed in English so we plan to show the film in its original Japanese with subtitles.

If you are not familiar with this piece of cinematic history here is the plot summary:

monochrom #26-34: Ye Olde Self-Referentiality
A semi-entertaining release performance
Presented at Urban ReThink in Orlando, FL
625 E Central Blvd, Orlando, FL 32801
December 16, 2010, 8:00 PM

The phatzine monochrom #26-34 (Goat of 1k Young) is an impossibility in an impossible universe -- an unpeculiar mixture of proto-aesthetic fringe work, pop attitude, subcultural science and political activism. 500 pages (67 ounces) of outrageous printed bestiality. And we plan to thoughtfully present it at Urban ReThink... in the Most Central of all possible Floridas!

But what is monochrom?

monochrom is a magazine object appearing in telephone book format, which is published by the art/tech group of the same name. monochrom came into being in the mid-1990s as a fanzine for cyberculture, science, theory, cultural studies and the archaeology of pop culture in everyday life. Its collage format is reminiscent both of the early DIY fanzines of the punk and new wave underground and of the artist books of figures such as Dieter Roth, Martin Kippenberger and others. With a great deal of forced discontinuity, a cohesive potpourri of digital and analog subversion is pressed between the covers of monochrom. Each issue is an unnostalgic amalgam of 125 years of Western counterculture cocked, aimed and ready to fire at the present. It is a Sears catalog of subjective and objective irreconcilability -- the Godzilla version of the conventional coffee table book.
