Talking Points + Talking Ponies with Media Artist Ben Coonley

November 30, 2006 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm EST

Multi-disciplinary artist Ben Coonley presents a selection of underground art videos, Internet curiosities, and avant – PowerPoint performances that defy the logic of corporate aesthetics in favor of an ecstatic self-reflexive personal vision. In his Trick Pony videos, singing hobby-horses teach the audience how to play football, dance the Texas Two-Step, and explain the logic of global currency markets. In a series of new performance art pieces created entirely in PowerPoint, the ubiquitous graphs and bulleted text of Microsoft Office give way to wizard cats and hallucinatory technological trickery.
