The Electrofringe 2013 Showcase brings together 25 of the most exciting and innovative new media and electronic art projects from around Australia and internationally. Held throughout the foyer, gallery and workshop spaces at Newcastle’s Hunter Street TAFE, exhibiting artists will be present with their artworks, giving you the opportunity to explore, experience, interact and provide feedback. A series of free new media and electronic art performances and workshops will also run throughout the day, with artists showing live works and sharing their skills in a hands-on environment.
On Thursday June 13 from 6-9pm, Electrofringe presents ELECTROLAPSE, a video art screening for ISEA2013 that will blow your eyes out.
WHEN: Thursday June 13, 3013

Exhibiting Artists: Kane Ikin (MEL), Mogan Beringer (UK), Joe Hamilton (MEL), Jason Galea (MEL), Alan Proctor-Thompson (Burnt Pixel) (NZ), Nina Buchanan (SYD) and Aristides Garcia (GER).
ELECTROLAPSE is a 30-minute collection of new experimental video art that addresses themes of system failure, manipulation, distortion and opportunity. Each presenting artist deals with the video medium in a unique and surprising way to communicate new possibilities through glitches, mash-ups, appropriation and generative programming.
ELECTROLAPSE presents a selection of emerging and established Australian and international artists, includes a number of exciting Australian and world premieres and is just a whole lot of intensely awesome nourishment for your eyes and ears.
Curated by Electrofringe Artistic Co-Producers Peter Fitzgibbon and Roslyn Helper.
ELECTROLAPSE is happening as part of the exhibition “If A System Fails In A Forest..” presented by ISEA2013, 107 Projects and the College of Fine Arts, University of NSW.
