Thirty-Two Angry Dogs

Richard Jochum’s Crossword Project and Thirty-Two Angry Dogs, two large-scale media installations, will be on display as part of the New York Electronic Arts Festival 2017 in DUMBO, Brooklyn from June 1 – 30, 2017. The New York-based media artist’s video projections will feature an interactive crowd-sourced crossword puzzle shown on a video wall consisting of 27 connected video monitors, and the video recordings of 32 performers silently barking projected in 360 onto the theater wall. The exhibition is a collaboration between Harvestworks, New York, and Made in NY Mediacenter by IFP. Crossword Project is a dynamically rendered, interactive crossword animation projecting crowd-sourced questions that change every few seconds. Viewers may submit questions through a webform (crosswordproject.tumblr.com) or Twitter feed (#crosswordproject). Questions are fed to a database and channeled to the video screen in real-time allowing viewers to see their questions manifest before them. This work explores participatory work as a means of public discourse. Thirty-Two Angry Dogs is based on the Twenty Angry Dogs series in which performers have been invited to bark like angry dogs in front of a camera. The silenced barking emphasizes the helplessness of not being heard while expressing raw anger. The project has been shown at Gallery Bundo in South-Korea and at the Kuenstlerhaus Thurn&Thaxis in Austria.
