Spring/Summer 2016 Updates

  1. I did a Screening at Microscope Gallery, I showed some really old videos (oldest one was from 2004) and some brand new videos. Here is a still from one of the new videos, which is called “FREEDOM ISN’T FREE: I’M NOT CRAZY, IN AN INSTITUTION, SOCIETY IS CRAZY, IN AN INSTITUTION”ciocci_freedom_still
  2. One of my newer paintings “Refuse 2 Lose” was in the Group
    show “Off Screen” at Microscope Gallery.
  3. Nick Pinkerton wrote this Article in Art Forum about my videos, in preparation for the screening at Microscope Gallery.
  4. A New Extreme Animals Tape was just released on ThunderZone Entertainment (cassette tape, spotify, bandcamp, itunes) and I made a music video to go along with it, to the song from 2003 “God Jam,” which was premiered on Paper Magazine:

  5. I’ll be teaching at Oberlin 1 more year, including 2 new classes: “Internet Art” and “Digital Painting.” I’m developing the courses as we speak–any suggestions are welcome :) Oh–I keep forgetting to post about this, but a while ago I made a very simple script that randomly generates a link to an “art, tech, and culture click-bait article” from the massive archive of article links that I have been collecting from my facebook feed over the years. The script is at the bottom of this page:http://jacobciocci.org/oberlin/

    If you are reading this, I hope you are having a good summer!
