Project Information:
James Robert Ford has stated that his works are concerned with “the morality of idiocy”. Projects and investigations based around observations, process and play. Crossing-over web/digital with the physical manifestation of the art and often involving the everyday, so as to tap-in to our collective memory/consciousness. He has used mucus, Teletext, home exercise and car number plates as sources of inspiration and material for constructing the works. Combining nostalgic/childhood visual references & ideas with humour, personal narrative and contemporary issues.

S/N Coalition is an electronic art group, which works extensively with video, sound, animation, photography and locative media. Their exhibitions often include
performative elements and mediated footage, pushing both experimental and conceptual ideas around media. S/N members include Jennida Chase and Hassan Pitts who have been creating collaborative work together since 2008.

Project Information:
The Handy-Video remix collection is a new media project in which S/N Coalition remix the urban landscape of Berlin. The remixes are video/sound-hybrids, which visually feature street art and sonically feature various neighborhoods, transportation systems and markets. Over 150 remixes were installed back in to the cityscape via QR-Codes. The codes are accessible via internet enabled CCD devices (such as cell phones and mp3 players).
