Lucas uses several generations of image processing tools to manipulate commercially available chroma key video footage, royalty free music, and animated gifs, all sourced from the Internet. ETC Mix (Summer of 2011) is a high-octane reverie about the fraught space of ownership and open culture in the public commons with moments of reckless abandon, chance juxtapositions, and careless edits. Her resulting “mix tape” was produced during a residency at The Experimental Television Center in 2011 and features old and new image processing tools created by Dave Jones, Dan Sandin, and collaborators Nam June Paik and Shuya Abe.
