The ADC asked me to produce and creative direct the Young Guns event, which would take place at the ADC venue, which would be the last event in that iconic venue. I had also served as a nominator for the Young Guns, and a few of my picks (Ezra Miller, Nonotak, Laila Gohar) had been selected. It thus made sense to as these artists to create something for the event. I also enlisted Christine Renee to play music during the event, which was organized as both a party and an award show.
Ezra Miller created some custom software to take a camera feed from the audience and run it through his custom WebGL shaders, using Chrome as a platform. Laila Gohar created a new installation using potatoes to power three LED fixtures, adjoined by a pile of potato chips. Nonotak performed their "Late Speculation" piece.
