Art & Hacking: The Propulsion Paintings By Evan Roth

Propulsion PaintingsPropulsion Paintings

Propulsion Paintings, a video and mixed media work by hacktivist Evan Roth, reference and appropriate popular culture and show experiments with spray paint cans and their built-in pressure. This new media work celebrate the transformative power by removing the aerosol can from its familier context and giving it a much more immediate job to do. The “hack” is a term stemming from early computing culture and describes a clever intervention into an existing system that alters the intended purposes or meaning. ❚
