Cary Peppermint's CONDUCTOR NUMBER ZERO VERSION 6.0 is the latest in his ongoing series of interactive, real-time performance-installations or "techno-lectures in continuous update." In the artist's own words, "CN_ZERO could be considered a hyper-construction of a 'recombinant pop-star', i.e. an ARTIST who functions as a latent carrier for art (the construction of culture) instead of the commercially constructed artist, i.e. the POP-STAR who functions as a latent carrier for capital and exchange (the leveling of culture)."
halogen work-lights, surveillance cameras, monitors, a portable p.a., a Polaroid
camera and a laptop computer, CN_ZERO is in essentially a performative "base
camp" for human media-saturation. An "overexposure in light and sound",
CN_ZERO is a performance that questions the very conditions of possibility for
cultural production. http://www.restlessculture.net/cnzero/
