Resident artist Jon Cohrs has created a device for striking it rich by prospecting for oil in the city center. Using old metal detectors, hydrocarbon sensors, locative media, and hype, this project combines a DIY aesthetic, basic accessible electronics, and pop culture to re-invigorate urban exploration and prospecting. Riding on the coat tails of the current subculture of prospecting and the historical precedent of the Gold Rush, the aim is to encourage a tongue-in-cheek urban oil rush.

Project Created:

Matt Ortega was born in 1985. As an artist working with sound, moving images, and collage, his work combines the formal and conceptual qualities of each medium. Hoping to use art democratically and to reinforce community, his work is inspired by the everyday and by the limitations of Do It Yourself methods. He recently started to work with found and cultural materials after taking interest in the theoretical ideas behind DJ culture. He believes that the current state of information overload can be remedied by remixing and recycling these materials and promote an ethical use of information.
