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.

Light Painting Photo and Video by @kpimmel

I came across a video made by using long-exposure photographs of blinking lights on a turntable, driven by an Arduino controller. The results are visually stunning. I don't know how long it takes Kim Pimmel to make just a few seconds of video, but if it's anything like normal stop motion - and normal computer graphics - now compounded by trying to get the lights and motors do do what you want them to, I'll say that this is a hobby for the patient man.
