Dylan Neuwirth. NOTHING TO FREAK OUT ABOUT THE WORLD IS BURNING
Strikethrough takes stock of art-making and art-consuming in the early 21st century—an era of ubiquitous marketing, hyper connectivity, over-documentation, and window-display lifestyles—and brings its inevitable conclusion to the here and now, 10-15 years early. Originally a year-long performance series that took place in 2008, Strikethrough asks artists to create an original performance work that will not be seen by any audience. The work is for the artists only.
About the artist
Seattle School was initially established in 2002 as a performance group interested in exploring sound and music, in relation to aspects of space, memory, teleology, notation, failure, and audience. Inevitably expanding from composition, Seattle School evolved to include all performance and ephemeral arts disciplines. Seattle School creates experiences that holistically engage all senses, encompassing dimensions such as time and environment. Projects have included a corporeal-sampled laptop battle judged via biological output, a composed bicycle tour of a city, an art transformation of an entire motel before its razing, and a competitive songwriting game show which was sold to network television.
