Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.
Tester is a network emboding the very meaning of being a cultural network nowadays. Not caring too much about the infrastructure, always dynamic and open, the different members are establishing relationships that interconnect very different backgrounds and locations. The strenght of a network like this lies in its common genes (in this case the radical political approach to decode reality and produce art) and its basic distant geographical roots (Slovenja, Germany, South Africa, Peru, Spain/Basque Country, Austria). They build up a platform on which the different parts of the world cultural resistance are shared and confronted through works of art and texts of the respective authors (sixty different ones contributing here). Everyone of them became another active node increasing the total number of nodes and the consequent ramifications, in a virtuous expansions of connecting alliances. This double dvd is a good companion to the Tester book recently published and contains six hours of video art, a huge archive of copyleft texts and even the entire above-mentioned book in pdf form.
