|DM Dora Budor & Maja Cule - Easy listening
Easy Listening: WorldWide Gallery Traxx 2012 takes a form of curated mixtape (available on website and soundcloud) created by remixing audio material collected from over 100 'white cube' galleries worldwide via Skype call surveys. All the recordings of conversations with gallery receptionists were appropriated into nine songs, titled, and sent to 9 artists/DJs (Brenmar, M.E.S.H., Craxxxmurf, DjuDju, Pictureplane, Asa Cossaboom, Slava, @LILINTERNET , o F F Love) to remix into 'contemporary poetry'.
|group IOCOSE - First Viewer television
'First-viewer Television' generates a playlist of 0-views videos through IOCOSE's 'firstview' API. Every viewer is always the first viewer, because nobody has already saw the video. The first viewer television is a part of the NoTube project, developed in the last 3 years. In an age obsessed with digital preservation, constantly growing databases, search engine optimization and unlimited encyclopedias, the NoTube is here to investigate in the dark side of meaning production.
|Josh Bricker - Post Newtonianism
This piece is a two-channel video with sound. The video on the left consists of a loop of actual war footage taken from cameras mounted on American military airplanes and helicopters during the first Gulf War in 1991 and the current occupation of Iraq. In contrast, the footage on the right is from the popular video game “Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare”. The sound track is a mixture of audio taken from the video game and footage released by Wikileaks in which the US military killed two reporters working for Reuters as well as a number of unarmed civilians.
|J. Trautwein - Occupy Occupism
Occupy Occupism is a text based gif animation, a sound-based grisaille motion painting in three clicks, a repetitiously layered blur of words questioning the concept of occupism. Occupy Occupism is a visual -verbal exploration of the sad reality that free speech ends where the profit margin begins. Occupy Occupism is a symbolic project towards liberation from the burden of corporate and governmental control and censorship. Occupy Occupism is an endless call for perpetual revolution.

|Luke Munn - Empty BODY
"Empty Body" utilises the conventional HTML tag with the artists own bodily dimensions, setting up a relationship between headheights and browser heights, the somatic and the screen. The demarcated space without content establishes a web space simultaneously occupied and vacated.
|Vincent Hulme - Neverevereding
Meditation on liking.
