My work was mentioned by Francesco Spampinato in an article titled: Electro-luminescenza: Videoarte a dorso di Mini Pony (fluo) which Google translates as: “Electro-luminescence: Video Art on the back of Mini Pony (fluorescent).” [link] Spampinato is an artist and theorist living and working in Bologna and New York. He writes for: Flash Art, Kaleidoscope, Impackt, and Artlab. The article was recently published in an issue of LINK, a major TV and media studies journal in Italy. The article is about artists who employ remix, subversion, de(con)struction, and digital psychedelia in their work. The list of artists (I quoted it below) is awesome!
