|Dexter SinisterUniversal Serial Bus|
What’s on a Universal Serial Bus? A collection of electronic works by Dexter Sinister produced from 2008 to 2015. Dexter Sinister is the compound name of Stuart Bailey and David Reinfurt, who operate at the intersection of graphic design, publishing, and contemporary art. This memory stick is released parallel to the exhibition at Kunstverein München, “On a Universal Serial Bus.*”
The four projects on this drive each play in one of the Kunstverein’s four main spaces surrounded by a number of related objects. The four projects are:
(1) “Identity”—An MP4 of a three-screen projection from 2011 that lasts for 22 minutes.
(2) True Mirror Microfiche Video—An MP4 of a single-channel video from 2009 that lasts for 12 minutes and 17 seconds.
(3) Work-in-Progress—A software application of a strange clock that turns on a 16-second loop, together with Theme from the Last ShOt Clock, an MP3 that lasts for 17 minutes.
(4) Letter & Spirit—An MP4 of a single-channel animation from 2014 that lasts for 18 minutes and 30 seconds.
And then I am the one driving this bus. My file name is ReadMe—an MP4 of a voice-synthesized text that lasts for 4 minutes and 22 seconds.
