ERIC SAKS AND PATRICK TIERNEY

ERIC SAKS AND PATRICK TIERNEY:ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK

"Eric Saks has been at the forefront of digital media culture for over a decade, fashioning an eclectic film and videography that combines live action, animation, and digital manipulation; .With a keen eye for the roiling anxieties disrupting contemporary America's relationship to all forms of technology, from the seemingly innocuous telephone to the more insidious surveillance devices dotting urban street corners, Saks has built a body of work that deftly limns the contours of an evolving technoculture."—Holly Willis

FILM and VIDEO Series

Eric Saks and Patrick Tierney will premiere several new videos, including Saks' Hung Up, Dirt, Come To See Ya and Nation Elevated; Tierney's Disnotopia; and their collaborative Neglectosphere (revised version) and Don From Lakewood: A Lost Episode.

Patrick Tierney is a third generation Angelino and multi-disciplinary artist and writer whose work draws much of its nutriment from his expeditionary probes into what (he insists) is popularly and unjustifiably perceived as the "culturally fallow prairie land" of Los Angeles suburban fringe. His new focus is on a compilation of drawings, writings, charted data, and photographs with the working title Mouse Latitudes in which he will demonstrate why Disneyland matters. He has a year round pass to Disneyland. (SA)
