DadarheaOrganized by Jim Drain and Devin Flynn
Welcome to Dadarhea, an idea born from an absurd dream involving pee filled super-soakers and deep fried laptops. It’s a Dadaist pizzeria. It’s idea-rhea. It’s the video art equivalent to fantasy island – where Devin Flynn is the Mr. Roarke to Jim Drain’s tattoo. Dadarhea is a free-form video workshop with a group of guest artists who pride themselves on confounding their audience, allowing them to employ animation, live action video (on location and green-screen), musical performance, or any and all improvised and questionable behavior. Through the month of July, a residency in Miami and at Bec Stupak’s Honeygun Labs (NYC), will take place in order to experiment with the possibility of total video saturation. The finished video will premiere on August 13 with an accompanying installation comprised of all ephemera related to the project. Dadarhea-ists include: Brian Belott, Sam Borkson, Melissa Brown, Jim Drain, Neil Fazzari, Naomi Fisher, Devin Flynn, Jessie Gold, Leif Goldberg, Ross Goldstein, Billy Grant, Laura Grant, Joe Grillo, Alvaro Ilizarbe, Todd James, Erin Krause, Alison Kuo, Marie Lorenz, Taylor McKimens, Takeshi Murata, Ara Peterson, Rich Porter, Trish Riefert, Bert Rodriguez, Francine Spiegel, Jen Stark, Debbie Tuch, Michael Williams, and Johnny Woods.
