Mixing humor and pathos, the work of new media artist and game designer Evan Meaney meditates on the transience of human experience and its representation in digital media. Meaney often uses corrupted and failing data as source material, exploring human efforts to collect and preserve in the face of entropy. He presents a selection of videos, software, and virtual reality artworks from the past decade, including ++WE WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER (2017), which reflects on the creative impulse and efforts to create archives of human code--both digital and DNA--on the moon. Presented in collaboration with SAIC’s Video Data Bank. Multiple formats. (Amy Beste)

Filmmaker Evan Meaney is scheduled to appear for audience discussion.
