About the event

In the Victorian short story The Yellow Wallpaper, a woman is quarantined in a small attic covered in decaying yellow wallpaper. As she spends more time in the attic, she witnesses a woman behind the wallpaper who is also herself. The wallpaper is a portal between the exterior and interior of the self, it is both the embodiment of oppression and the way through it.  In Maya Ben David’s "Vore Babies”  it’s the hall of mirrors known as fan fiction, furries, and anthro-cosplay that are both the prison and the light at the end of the tunnel. Within Maya’s esoteric identity formations there is a simultaneous profession of deep loneliness, of being misunderstood, combined with a fierce protection of that same loneliness, of being “the only one who gets it.” If the 20th century’s answer to alienation (avant garde art or punk rock) was too easy to commodify, perhaps the 21st century’s answer to alienation is locked inside the comments section of sexy pokemorph deviantart fan fic forums.  -Jacob Ciocci and Francis Marion Moseley Wilson

VORE BABIES is the first artists' video by Toronto-based anthropomorphic airplane Maya Ben David. Contains 17 short videos and performances in 48 minutes, a character guide and a small poster of MBD obliterating Jon Rafman.

Grow a new tongue to lick the saltwater off the second Savory Selections. Only the greatest grassroots vid zine cavorting down the render halfpipe since the days of Tellus, Target, or Toy Machine; the Vid Art Lifeguard with a “Message of the Medium” tank top is running to give you mouth to mouth syllabus:  but then whoa, shotgun weed instead- so Be Kind and puffpuffpass to a friend your copy of this Actual Physical Mixtape of Modern Marvels. Savory II parasails off the Zeit-crest Kahuna wave of post-Mind’s Eye pixelklutz neo-Jacolby landscape, thus transforming into a condor-faced Art Video humor jet shark firing turbo horror film signifiers but never abandoning Kucharian cardboard can-do. Assembled with unparalleled curatorial dexterity by samurai wizkid Mike Jensen, steeped in teas of both coastal undergrounds and with a dollop of cream for academic werewolfs churning butter for undergrads,  Savory is an array of jewels to put bower birds to shame and cause Temples of trustees to collapse heave a sigh of “I give up- you win”, sexy and smart as a dolphin talking a scientist into a handjob.  -Matthew Thurber
