At the intersection of visual art, performance, and cinema, Man with a Projector presents a rare chance to see important historic works and new film and video performances by Malcolm Le Grice and Guy Sherwin, two artists associated with The London Film Makers’ Co-operative. The Co-op - a group of British experimental filmmakers active in the 1960s and 70s–radically transformed the dialogue around the cinematic experience. In an atmosphere of dynamic debate and daring experimentation, the group challenged the illusionistic tradition of cinema and insisted on more active, participatory experiences, focusing their attention on film projection as a live event, and often employing multiple screen projections, live filmmaking, performances, and installations. For Man with a Projector, Malcolm Le Grice will collaborate with musician Keith Rowe, while Guy Sherwin will present a work conceived in tandem with artist Lynn Loo.

JODI's ongoing performance project, The Folksomy Project, takes YouTube as source material, with the artists utilizing custom software to select and manipulate user-generated videos from the popular website. Armed with a virtual "juke-box" of video clips, JODI focuses on YouTube users love-hate relationship with new technologies, from iPod love ballads to laptop smashing. As with much of JODI's work, The Folksomy Project is a study in how online systems (dis)function.

Net art pioneers JODI will join emerging practitioners from Eyebeam's studios, senior fellow Jeff Crouse & his collaborator Aaron Meyers to discuss their performance installations – The Folksomy Project and The World Series of 'Tubing, respectively – that Eyebeam is presenting as part of PERFORMA 09.

In a discussion moderated by Marisa Olson (Artist, Assistant Professor of New Media, SUNY-Purchase, and Contributing Editor, Rhizome) the artists will share insights into the making of their work, including a behind the scenes look at the tools and methodologies used to source, collect, organize and stage interactive performances for YouTube videos. Artists will also consider the roots of such projects, and contextualize their work within a larger context of creative strategies for re-presenting user generated content in live performance.

As part of the citywide biennial performance art festival, PERFORMA 09, Eyebeam will present an event featuring media artists who "perform the web" – bringing together net art pioneers JODI with emerging artists from Eyebeam's studios, senior fellow Jeff Crouse and research associate Aaron Meyers. The Performa 09 event, Friday, November 20, at 8PM, will highlight work that speaks to the speed of, and ruptures in, social media and user generated web platforms. The evening will feature Jeff Crouse and Aaron Meyers' high-energy, augmented reality game show, The World Series of 'Tubing; and JODI's The Folksomy Project, a performative audiovisual deconstruction of YouTube.

Installations of both group's work will be on display November 19 - 21. The installations will include sculptural objects and video projections that both describe and enhance the ideas behind the performances.
