Through techniques of hacking, manipulating, recycling, and reconfiguring, Cory Arcangel turns the intersection of technology and culture into materials for making art.

He works in a range of mediums, from music, film, painting, and performance to video games, websites, and software, often relying on appropriation of pop cultural idioms, particularly those found online.

The piece shown at Arsenal Contemporary Art is from the Photoshop Gradient Demonstrations series: digital paintings made from the software’s ubiquitous templates.
