        Grab a bag of popcorn or fave snack and a fine beverage! This is Hadley+Maxwell's new film that reworks a keynote presentation we created for the symposium "Intangible Economies," performed in Vancouver, BC, November 18, 2011, organized by Antonia Hirsch for fillip magazine. We have added features to the original video feed over which we normally speak in the live performance with the aim of replacing our physical bodies with prosthetic sounds and images. The text has also been reworked to open itself to many possible contexts. The presentation begins with applause and ends with snoring. It opens with a quote from the poet and philosopher Lisa Robertson.

          Seven on Seven 5th Anniversary May 3, 2014 Presented by Rhizome, the Seven on Seven conference pairs seven leading artists with seven influential technologists in teams of two, and challenges them to develop something new–whatever they choose to imagine—over the course of a single day. David Kravitz is a software engineer and one of the first developers behind the photo-messaging app Snapchat. He almost has a degree in computer science from Stanford University (just 3 credits left). When he's not working on Snapchat, you can find him playing jazz piano and writing comedy. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California. Frances Stark is a Los Angeles-based artist working in multiple media – from works on paper to performance – examining "the conditions of creative labor," and highlighting the aspects of artistic production that are less frequently acknowledged. Stark's work has been exhibited extensively, including in solo shows at MoMA PS1 and the Van Abbemuseum in Eindoven, as well as notable group exhibitions such as the 2008 Whitney Biennial and the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011. In 2011, she was also commissioned to create a new work for Performa 11. She received her M.F.A. in 1993 from Art Center College of Design.

              Frances Stark’s newest video installation, "Bobby Jesus’s Alma Mater b/w Reading the Book of David and/or Paying Attention Is Free", makes its debut at the 2013 Carnegie International. Continuing her “brazen pursuit of unlikely alliances,” the work centers on a text projection based on conversations with Bobby, a self-described resident of “planet ’hood” who has become her studio apprentice and friend.

                      In November 2010 we visited Frances Stark in her Chinatown studio to discuss her work in relation to the exhibition "All of this and nothing". Language is both a medium and a subject in the work of Frances Stark, whose works on paper and sculptures explore the potential and the limits of language. Fascinated by language's ability to both inscribe and confuse meaning, her work explores art's capacity for communication, and interpretation in works that often take up the subject of the artist's studio and working processes. (Run time: 4 min., 14 sec.)
