The Jackals @ Summer Solstice

The Jackals returned to the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art for Summer Solstice, the Museum's annual midsummer 24-hour art party. In the Jackal GamePod, classic videogame consoles were wired together to produce luminous video abstractions. The GamePod apparatus begins with high-paced, aggressive live game imagery, and extracts, layers, magnifies, and saturates minute details of the image, transforming it into something lush and contemplative.
