Seeing this work by Arend deGruyter-Helfer made me nostalgic for the "infinite fill" show, a New York moment that came and passed in 2004. A fair amount of energy crackled around that show [photos] [writing].
Then "the gallery didn't sell a single piece," word had it.
And that was it.
The current "slacker" shows in the museums (or whatever they're supposed to be) do not reflect Komputer Kraft--hybrids of the handmade and lo fi digital, which some artists are more committed to than others. The only work that comes close are the Lialina and Slocum* pieces linkable at the New Museum. It's a shame, I think it's still interesting.
