Noble & Superior Projects presents TWINFORMATION, 4/2

TWINFORMATION: Featuring the work of Eric Veit and Jon Satrom
April 2-May 4, 2010
Noble & Superior Projects
1418 W. Superior Chicago IL
Opening Reception: Friday, April 2 (6-10pm)

Noble & Superior Projects is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition TWINFORMATION, opening Friday, April 2, featuring the work of Eric Veit and Jon Satrom.

Eric Veit's installation COMMUNAL LIVING features new digital paintings, abstract sculpture and light installation combined to investigate the complexity of human relationships, specifically his interest in the "poetic beauty" of conjoined twins. Veit explores concepts outside of the restrictions of media specificity in order to create complex and wide ranging installations that transform the gallery into a sublime territory.

Eric Veit currently lives and works in Philadelphia, PA. After showing extensively in the northeast, Veit is premiering his newest body of work in Chicago. Veit received his B.A. from Hampshire College in 2008 and attended the Yale Summer School of Music and Art in 2007.

Jon Satrom's TRENDS is a collection of images generated from inquiries using the data platform Google Trends. These often humorous and seemingly innocuous queries reveal more about the environment of ubiquitous databases than one might initially infer. Satrom's work consistently illustrates the innumerable possibilities and faults of digital media, positioning both user and viewer to be enveloped by the infinite body of knowledge found in contemporary information systems.

Jon Satrom is an artist and educator based in Chicago. Satrom currently serves as faculty at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in addition to running his production studio, Studio Thread, and performing live with the media collective I <3>.
