Sedition and Designcollector are delighted to announce the winners of the Digital Decade open call for video artworks.
During July 2017, artists working with the moving image submitted their responses to the theme ‘Cyberia’ to an open call co-ordinated by Sedition and DesignCollector Network.
85 artworks were submitted by artists whose work responds to the geopolitical, environmental and social changes which are taking place, and will take place, as a result of the increasing influence of digital practices worldwide.
Five artworks were chosen for exhibition in Digital Decade 5 organised by DesignCollector Network, which takes place from 25-27 August. Digital Decade 5 will combine works from a range of media including print, video and VR to look to the digital future.
Quantum Fluctuations by Markos Kay
Markos R. Kay is a digital artist, director and lecturer with a focus on art and science. He is best known for his video art experiment aDiatomea (2008), exhibited at Ernst Haeckel's Phyletic Museum, and for the generative short The Flow (2011), which can be seen in an episode of the TV series, Breaking Bad. His art and design practice ranges from screen-based media to projection and print. Kay’s work can be described as a series of experiments using generative methods which explore and abstract the complex worlds of molecular biology and particle physics.
Created as a series of virtual experiments, Quantum Fluctuations shows the complexity and transient nature of the quantum world, which is impossible to observe directly.
Turmoil by Joëlle Snaith
Joëlle (b. 1982) is a South African designer and visual artist whose work is focused on exploring the connection between sound and form. Her creative process is led by experimentation and emotion and she considers her output a reflection of her environment and state of mind.
Her works range from music videos and generative graphics to live real-time visuals and are constructed of computer generated imagery and audio responsive elements that result in moving images largely sculpted by sound.
Turmoil explores themes of fragility and desolation. A longing for a world untouched and unbroken.
Of Soil by Yoshi Sodeoka
Yoshi Sodeoka is an artist from Yokohama, Japan, who’s lived in New York for more than two decades. Sodeoka’s neo-psychedelic work with video, GIFs and print simultaneously inhabits the world of fine art, music (he’s collaborated with bands like Psychic TV, Tame Impala, Yeasayer, Beck, The Presets), publications (creating art prints for New York Times, Wired Magazine, San Francisco Magazine, Entertainment Weekly), and advertising (developing projects with brands like Apple, Samsung and Nike). Sodeoka’s work has been shown all over the world, from Centre Pompidou, Tate Britain, Museum of Modern Art, Deitch Projects, La Gaîté lyrique, Channel 4 Random Acts UK, Baltimore Museum of Art, OneDotZero, Sonar Festival, Transmediale, Whitney Museum of America's Art Artport.

When Hell Freezes Over by Carla Gannis
When Hell Freezes Over is a time-based realization of the print triptych and consists of composited elements which capture the cycles of nature. The seasons are rendered as emojis as the work flits between Bosch’s famous painting and digital culture at its most recognizable and ubiquitous. When Hell Freezes Over is both a humorous mash-up and reflective comparison of Bosch’s iconography and Emojis, the virtual sign/symbols of the present century.
Nearfield by Overlap
Overlap's Nearfield appears as a moving piece of audiovisual abstraction rendered in a palette of mostly whites, occasionally interrupted by nuances of new colours which add a subtle warmth to an otherwise icy ambience. As the visuals unfold, Overlap’s polyphonic soundtrack produces a series of alien vibrations, evocative oscillating disruptions which carry the shifting shadows across the screen. As hypnotic as they are haunting, Nearfield creates a view into an isolated and entirely abstract world in which detail appears to have been replaced by impenetrability and ambiguity. As with other works from the Glide collection, Nearfield appears to delve into our psyche, relating experienced dreams to realised abstractions.
The five works will be presented in the Hub at Ugly Duck, Tanner Street, London during Digital Decade 5, where they will be displayed on the Sedition Frame. The winning works are also available as digital editions on the Sedition platform.
"Before the age of social media and its painstakingly sculpted personae, Pictures Generation artist Cindy Sherman had already established herself as the art world’s reigning queen of self-reinvention, using the camera to morph into one character after another. Though her works are technically not self-portraits, Sherman’s method of turning the lens onto herself is uncannily appropriate to our times, in which the stage-managed selfie has become so ubiquitous that it’s now fodder for exhibitions and often cited as an art form in itself.."
Cynthia Morris "Cindy" Sherman is an American photographer and film director, best known for her conceptual portraits. In 1995, she was the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship.

BONET is a tribute made by "The 21 Night" studio (Santiago Restrepo Arias) to the Catalan architect Antonio Bonet. Author of a vast work, which tweaks with his genius the geography of Spain and Latin America, which remains a great unknown. Six fragments that project the kaleidoscope of Catalan rationalism, gather and modernise the legacy of architect. It is also a recovery of the dialogue between architecture and light. Between stone and soul. A colourful tribute to the splendour of his work

Matthew Stone is an artist and shaman. These two interconnected roles are defined by his activities as painter, photographer, sculptor, performance artist, writer, Optimist and cultural provocateur.
Stone’s most recent body of work demonstrates an innate enthusiasm for the development of painting within the framework of art history. The new works, use 3d modelling software and paint to break with the history of painting on a flat surface, lifting the strokes into a virtual and free space. The addition of shadows and foreshortening creates an illusionistic - trompe l’oeil sense of depth and perspective within the canvases. He organises and examines complex statements in regard to the relationship between painting, photography & computer generated imagery disrupting the holy status of painting as the ‘cosmic flesh’ of art history whilst simultaneously pushing the visceral experience of paint forward. The series offers a new technical approach to traditional painting, showing diverse bodies at play and in conflict.

Mikhail Batrak is a Ukrainian artist whose work examines the relationship between perception, Surrealism and empiricism. His creative process involves taking photographs with a digital camera and manipulating the results using computer software, combining disparate elements to create unexpected hybrid images. Drawing on techniques such as photomontage, digital drawing and collage, he updates the tropes of Surrealism for the digital age, utilising the visual language and style of the movement to pursue his own vision.
