2-UP #8 Launch Party
The release party celebrated 2-UP’s newest work, by Joe Winter and Christian Hawkey. Exhibiting the entropic effects of time, Winter and Hawkey’s poster features a transcribed conversation between the two participants that was entered through digital translation and voice recognition technology. The end result is a misread, fragmented dialogue that ranges in topics. Guests are invited to follow previous artists and writers in making revisions to the posters, as the works are structured and printed to take on additional elements of corrosion that might skew meaning and message in alternate directions.
