Ero­di­um Thunk

The film was made spe­ci­fi­cal­ly for a group show in Vien­na (cura­ted by Clint Enns and Madi Pil­ler) tit­led From A to Z, that reflects on Miche­al Snow’s 1956 ani­ma­ted film of the same name, and his mul­ti­pli­ci­ty of approa­ches which flu­id­ly tran­si­ti­on bet­ween media and form.  It is an end­less bar­ra­ge of hyper­lin­ked cable tele­vi­si­on com­mer­cials. With equal doses of sati­re and nost­al­gia, the pro­mi­sed plea­su­res of late con­su­mer capi­ta­lism are deco­n­struc­ted through a con­tem­pora­ry form of détournement.

Bio­gra­phie

Win­s­ton Hacking is a moving image artist ori­gi­nal­ly from Peter­bo­rough, Onta­rio. His work often com­bi­nes found foo­ta­ge, col­la­ge, green screen and pup­pe­tee­ring. Hacking’s work is eco­no­mi­c­al, both in terms of his use of found mate­ri­als and the tech­ni­ques used. Des­pi­te his thrif­ty approach, his works are daedal due to his abi­li­ty to trans­form the mun­da­ne into the sub­li­me through crea­ti­ve re-contextualization.
