LAMPO presents: Jon Satrom’s Prepared Desktop

LAMPO: Satrom Prepared Desktop

Lampo and the Graham Foundation are pleased to present Jon Satrom and his “Prepared Desktop.” By inserting Easter eggs, capitalizing on computer customization, and abusing applications, he upgrades conventional computer programs and ordinary operating system elements to a kludgy audio/video instrument.

Tonight, Satrom performs sections of the new work in 3D. His commentary on recent cinematic upgrades?  Our attempt to confuse Madlener House with Navy Pier? You decide.

3D Satrom

Jon Satrom is a Chicago-based dirty-new-media artist who spends his days fixing things, making things work, and educating. He spends his evenings breaking things, learning, and searching for the unique blips inherent to the systems he explores and exploits. With a background in video, sound and new-media, Satrom has strung together a collection of home-brew systems for real-time performance, which include custom video games, renegade computer scripts, obsolete display hacks and corrupt data.

Satrom’s collaborative projects include I Love Presets alongside Rob Ray and Jason Soliday, PoxParty with Ben Syverson, and Magic Missile with Jason Soliday and Geoff Guy. He has been affiliated with the criticalartware dot net demo krew featuring Jon Cates, Jake Elliott, Tamas Kemenczy and Mark Beasley. He organizes the Chicago GLI.TC/H Festival with Rosa Menkman, Nick Briz and Evan Meaney. Satrom also runs a small production company called studiothread and teaches in the Film Video New Media Animation Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Satrom first performed for Lampo in June 2009, when he presented the ensemble audio/video project, “Magic Matrix Mixer Mountain,” with Mark Beasley, jonCates, Jake Elliott, Tamas Kemenczy, Alex Inglizian and Nicholas O’Brien.

Prepared Desktop is inspired by JODI projects such as OSS & MyDesktop, Alexei Shulgin & Victor Laskin’s WIMP project, and I Love Presets.

  1. Hey, I go to South Illinois University of Chicago and you gave a glitch art conference here. After sometime I’ve been thinking about the stuff you taught us and I think I’ve come on to something interesting that puts a new spin on Glitch imaging.

    Email me back and I’ll discuss it further step by step what I did and what I could do In-between those steps to make better imaging.

    thanks,

    Broc Pachesa
