Program 17: Jacob Ciocci
Exhibition dates: Friday, March 1, 2019- Wednesday, May 8, 2019
Screen Share Video Gallery is thrilled to premiere a new video work by multimedia artist, Jacob Ciocci:
"Default Mode Network Room Loop"
HD Video with sound
"'Default Mode Network Room Loop' delves into the darkness of the Contemporary American Male Psyche through a series of animated photographs and rambling, confession-style voice-overs, set to a musical score by Aaron Dilloway. Over the course of 10 minutes, close-up photos of used consumer junk and animated doodles slowly pan across the screen as a pitched-down male voice attempts to confront his own mind: is he crazy or has society made him crazy? The only way out seems to be some kind of daily Sisyphean ritual of sorting through his damaged mind, and then trying to go the gym. But, the junk just keeps piling up. Who is to blame for this mess inside your mind? You don't actually have a problem, society is the problem."
