Plexus Projects is pleased to present a solo exhibition of work by Everest Pipkin in our Vitrine screening series. Ellinger, TX is generative video software, based on a real small town situated on the intersection two highways between Austin and Houston, TX. This version of Ellinger has been cut off from its highway routes, as well as the rest of the world- the characters that live in this town are in a micro-landscape, bordered. The content of this town is built of digital creative-commons 3d models, pointing towards tropes of recycling and reuse in narratives of survival outside of commerce and larger connective societal systems.
Everest Pipkin is a drawing and software artist from Bee Caves, Texas, who produces intimate work with large data sets. Through the use of online archives and other resources for digital information, they aim to reclaim the corporate internet as a space that can be gentle, ecological, and personal. They hold a BFA from University of Texas at Austin, a MFA from Carnegie Mellon University, and have shown at The Design Museum of London, The Texas Biennial, and The XXI Triennale of Milan, among others. They are currently based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Everest Pipkin’s video will be on view in Vitrine on Sunday, August 4, 2019 from 7-11pm. Vitrine is an ongoing screening series of videos projected on our storefront window and viewed from the sidewalk. The series welcomes unwitting passersby to stop, discover, and enjoy the work of an international selection of new media artists. Please note the gallery is closed during screening times.
