SPAMM Cupcake is an online show of new media art curated by Ellectra Radikal and Systaime Alias Michaël Borras that was streamed live for the week of Feb. 28–Mar 5, 2013, to a storefront at the corner of Bowery and Kenmare streets in Manhattan, at the invitation of Mark Brown. Ellectra instigated a few months of conversation on FaceBook and eventually some 50 artists participated. The video for my work Snapper is shown here (thanks to Steve Stoppert for the videos, and to Dafna Ganani for making them available on FB). You can find the original animated GIF on the SPAMM Cupcake site, of course, and in my portfolio page of GIFs. Snapper is a work in my recent series on glitch and social memory. Some still images can be viewed on my Glitch Nation page. SPAMM Cupcake has several sites on Facebook, including its group page, the New York City event page and a new page documenting Cupcake.
The events and documents and chats have been flowing so furiously I have barely had time to check out all the works at SPAMM Cupcake. I’m posting this as a way of gathering the documentation and declaring my intention to be a less involved with FB commentary about the show and more involved in experiencing the work in the show.
