On Monday night, we went to check out Speedshow, an internet cafe takeover staged by Evan Roth (whose work is at MoMA for “Talk To Me”) and curated by Aram Bartholl (of Dead Drops). It surprised me that traditional style internet cafes still exist and this one at 90 Bowery is a throwback to those from the ’90s and early 2000s, with tons of kids playing first person shooter video games. It’s in the basement of the building down a narrow staircase, lending further mystique in a neighborhood known for its secret underground passageways.

This week Cory Arcangel invites us for a peep behind-the-scenes to see how his inimitable brand of internet-infused, code-heavy art gets made. Cory’s one of those rare artists who knows how to make digital art with heart and flesh and soul. With a catalog of work that often celebrates the unfiltered human weirdness and beauty piped to our homes as the internet, the conversation returns several times to the World Wide Web. When we ask Cory for a run down of his favorite internet videos, he shows us a few awesome ones—like this and this. We talk about his earliest work, the now infamous Super Mario Clouds, and the treatise he wrote on jpeg compression. Cory plays us part of his latest piece, a recreation of Arnold Schoenberg’s 1999 op. 11 Drei Klavierstücke comprised entirely of Youtube clips with cats playing piano. And for anybody out there making art as you watch along at home: Cory even gives some great encouragement and advice about the art making process.
