Convergence: Glitch_Click_Thunk, Featuring Mark Amerika

The CONVERGENCE series encompasses and explores the impact of internet art, digital, electronic, sound and a wide range of new, traditional, and hybrid technologies on communication and art. Its inaugural installation features noted author, professor, and multimedia artist Mark Amerika. In dynamic interaction with Mark Amerika, the Lithopixel Refactory Collective sets up and works in a temporary production studio that is equal parts lithography, digital printing, live audio, print gallery, and shredding facility creating a constantly evolving exchange, employing dialogue and re-mix, resulting in synthesis.
