Dashing from awning to awning to avoid heavy spring thunder showers, your biking reporter dashes into I20 Gallery's latest presentation not only to catch up on the latest in "New Media", but to avoid more soaking. "Data Trash" is a co-mingling of a couple of generations of media hackers who scrounge mass media imagery like the Borneo Cargo Cultists. Collecting material for it's fetishistic power as much as its formal qualities, these artists recontextualize content and produce a strange hybrid form that has little to do with its original source, and exists in a peripatetic realm of aesthetics. Artists include:Nathan Azhderian, Gretchen Bender, Lizzi Bougatsos, Jim Brittingham, Sean Dack, David Deutsch, Matt Ducklo, Valie Export, Shane Hope, Devin Kenny, Josh Kline, Erin Knutson, Justin Lieberman, Ken Lum, Marlene McCarty, Walter Robinson, Saki Sato, Kiki Seror, Josh Tonsfeldt, Phil Vanderhyden, Kandis Williams.
