"The Urgency: Freedom Isn't Free"
Artist's Talk and Discussion by Jacob Ciocci

Ciocci will give an overview of his work, especially focusing on current projects, including his latest video, The Urgency, which has been described as: "one part send up of consumer electronics, one part lamentation of the negative impact of the internet, one part explosive collage of animation, found footage, and critical self-reflection. The hybrid sound of Extreme Animals (which fuses elements of hardcore, remix, gabber, and experimental electronic noixe) intermingle with a hyperactive mediation on Apple products, rugged individualism, and the disturbing power of networked digital connectedness." — Undervolt (2014)

Ciocci exhibits internationally in one person and group shows. Previously, his work appeared under the pseudonym “paper rad”, a collaborative project he started with 2 other artists. His work, ranging from animated videos to comics to performance, deals with the relationship between popular culture and popular technology. In 2006 he was awarded a Heinz Creative Heights grant to create a new 20-minute video for children called “problem solvers”. Jacob received a Masters of Fine Art degree in 2005 from Carnegie Mellon University, and previously a Bachelors of Fine Art in 2000 from Oberlin College, OH. Recent exhibits, screenings and performances have included venues such as The New Museum, New York, the Detroit Museum of Contemporary Art, Sundance Film Festival, the Athens Biennial, Eyebeam in New York, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
