Presented by Jeremy Bailey
Our presenter this week joins us by live video link from Toronto. Jeremy Bailey is an artist with a homespun take on augmented reality.
“Jeremy Bailey is a video and performance artist whose work is often confidently self-deprecating in offering hilarious parodies of new media vocabularies” Marisa Olson, Rhizome
Taking his cue from YouTube monologues, screencast instructionals and conversations where you’ll always see yourself in the little box in the corner, Jeremy Bailey returns what was taken from television in the ‘broadcast yourself’ revolution.
Mediated by technology, distance and humour, one layer of image on the screen is no more or less real than any other.
Clubbing Society TV Special: Life As It Could Be
To coincide with the evening’s full moon the Clubbing Society will both host and feature in a special interactive program that calls upon both the studio audience and viewers at home to partake in a series of ongoing climactic activities that lead to a bloody finale.
Utilising this unique collaboration between Auto Italia and LuckyPDF to its full technological potential, LIVE link ups with other ‘clubbers’ across London will expand our collective consciousness in an age of global feeling all in the light of the moon.
In this feeding trough of a collaboration, creativity will be distributed through a public and artistic network, empowering individuals in order to realise the wisdom of the group.
By placing a very important emphasis on the unknown, the Clubbing Society refuse to shy away from the delicate nature of LIVE television by exposing it’s potential for risk taking in the true spirit of it’s motto “to dare is to feel.”
Rachel Pimm, The Art Shopping Channel
Launching ASC, the Art Shopping Channel: A new way to view and buy contemporary artwork for your home.

Too sincere to be parody, ASC sites work by Rachel Pimm both in the tropes of shopping TV production and as a method of distribution into a second site both as images and in physical form – your homes. Rachel produces work commenting on lifestyles and aspirations in both the public and domestic realms, using existing networks for collaboration. ASC is proudly presented by Samantha Leverette, joining us from QVC and The Ideal World Shopping Channel. The Voice of ASC is David Shuker.
Through media language and video editing this work looks at and questions notions of difference and specific barriers that may be present in discussing this subject. Working with another artist Sean Flaherty to interrogate the collaborative nature of this subject Danielle subverts her responses to questions around the subject of identity and difference.
Danielle Dean is based in LA and works with reference to a variety of media – science fiction, advertising and pornography to explore contemporary ideas of race and social difference.

Nicholas Quenzer – Sets, Spectacles and Receptacles
Nicholas Quenzer’s set is constructed of sculptural forms and the images they create, their nets and projections. Throughout his work, lines are constructed of wood, tape, digital vectors, each producing forms with equal weight and physicality.
Demarcating perimeters, the floor is divided into sections, using flat polygons with the potential to translate from floor markings to vertical partitions. Templates determine the environment, viewed from above as if architectural proposition.
Fictional restraints are translated through virtual actualisations. Parameters are non-physical yet adhered too through schematic imprisonment.
The set is viewed as open and exposed, a sum of parts, components and elements. Individual sections combine towards a potential whole, bringing harmony to an otherwise disparate array of televisual products and paraphernalia.
