Bubblebyte - Energia Della Danza
1 - 30 April 2012
Paul Flannery, Rhys Coren, Laurel Schwulst and Oliver Sutherland
During April, the 'Short Sharp Blow to the Head' series sees bubblebyte.org present Energia Della Danza, an online collaboration of artists working together to disrupt the online presence of Trade and its usual way of working. This transformation of the usually clean, white Trade website consists of revised webpage coding (html+css) by Paul Flannery, dancing backgrounds by Rhys Coren, looped sound files by Oliver Sutherland and a special spinning globe navigation bar image (.ico) by Laurel Schwulst.
Energia Della Danza pays homage to the early 90s TV show Dance Energy, part of the BBC's DEF II programming directed solely at teenagers in the UK. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cw1vd9o1uM0)
