“Ideas improve. The meaning of words plays a role in that improvement. Plagiarism is necessary. Progress depends on it. It sticks close to an author’s phrasing, exploits his expressions, deletes a false ideas, replaces it with the right one.” - Guy Debord’s The Society of the Spectacle (Paris, 1967)

Jono Brandel relies on the combination of two fundamental disciplines: graphic design and computer programming. The results of this mixture vary in form, but usually have a screen-based component. He explores procedural aesthetics.

Jono studied Design | Media Arts with a minor in Latin at UCLA. He went on to receive two artist grants one at cheLA and the other at Fabrica. He is now part of the Data Arts Team in Google’s Creative Lab. His work has been showcased at the Tate Modern, OFFF, and HAMMER Museum. He has also had the pleasure to perform alongside Boys Noize, Deadmau5, Crystal Castles, and many others accompanying their music with moving image.

Sterling Crispin is an artist and technologist born 1985 in Maui, Hawaii. His work explores the relationships between spirituality, human consciousness, and impermanence as they relate to the exponential growth of computing technology and our networked global culture. He received a Master of Fine Arts from the UC Santa Barbara and is currently a candidate for a Master of Science in the Media Arts and Technology Department. Crispin is a coauthor of OpenDroneControl, an open source software platform for developing interactive artworks and research projects with aerial robotics.

Crispin's work has been featured in "Sneakerotics" at Edouard Malingue Gallery, "Beyond the Bond" at Studio Gallery, "#FUTUREMYTH" and "Dump.fm IRL" at 319 Scholes Gallery, and published in Katja Novitskova's "Post Internet Survival Guide".
