    In his practice Larson combines digital media with painting, lights, motors, and projected animations on freestanding screens. For his first solo show in Memphis, Larson is presenting five video projections: three from his series entitled Tantric Wealth from 2012, and two artworks from his most recent body of paintings that include elements of video. Through this constellation of artworks Larson addresses how technology has changed our ways of seeing. Are our ever-present screens and videos luring us into an extended state of passive hypnosis, or perhaps more optimistically, do they allow a more expansive mode of learning, contemplation, and meditation?

  3. WE SHOULD TAKE NOTHING FOR GRANTED – ON THE BUILDING OF AN ALERT AND KNOWLEDGEABLE CITIZENRY is an audio-visual installation and performance set of works that address current positions and politics of privacy, surveillance and safety of the global citizenry and their relationship to the military industrial complex. The title is based on a quote of US President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s famous Farewell Address of 1961 wherein he warns of the dangers of an unchecked military industrial complex1, government funding substituting for creative free thinking within higher education, and the extraction of the earth’s natural resources without consideration for the future. Clearly, the address is extremely relevant today in light of the Snowden2 and Klein3 massive surveillance revelations, creative thinking vs directed research as well as the continued resource extraction on a massive global scale. However, the speech is not a dark forecast for the future, but instead states that ‘…an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals…’ The project uses Eisenhower’s speech as the foundation for a set of works which address the central issue of the creating conditions for the development of an ‘alert and knowledgeable citizenry’.

    Aljosa Abrahamsberg, Matthew Biederman, Marko Peljhan and Brian Springer have been involved in activities dealing with the art and science of radio and telecommunications through the prism of radio art, technical culture, television, film, conceptual art, electronic music, media arts and tactical media since the 1980's and 1990's, in projects such as Ladomir-faktura, Makrolab, and Wardenclyffe. They are currently working on 'Systemic tactical environments' implementing the meshing of software defined radios, data aggregation, analysis and display.
