David Gryn, Director of Daata Editions, has curated a special selection of videos for screening on the video wall (and viewable online at Salon 94). The Daata Editions screening program celebrates the launch of the new online platform http://daata-editions.com by showing a selection of recent moving image works by artists commissioned to make new works for Daata (available to view and buy from May 14). Daata places artists at the center of the project and encourages a marketplace and means for distribution that supports artists working across digital media.

The Digital Revolutionaries is all of us. The digital realm is now our natural language and its evolution is ours. These artists make work that reflect on how we use the internet in personal and clichéd ways. What does it mean to surf and go online in our everyday experience? What are the references, inspirations and new kinds of vocabulary? Many of these works derive from public video sharing sites like Youtube, sourcing and super-cutting the accessible moments that resonate. The generation of Digital Revolutionaries make art with, for, from and about this medium, the internet.
