Andrew Siller: Jakk in the Boxxx

The associations with food are remade-to-order as mashups of personal and commercial footage.

Andrew Siller "Jakk in the Boxx"

Jakk in the boxxx offers guests the opportunity to feed Jakk Action. From mock restaurant menu options, his associations with food are remade-to-order as mashups of personal and commercial footage. Actual Nutrition Facts control audiovisual parameters metaphorically suggesting how he is from what he has eaten.

Andrew Siller produces electronic music and games with an emphasis on the remix. He started remixing songs with spreadsheet-like software that drives a passion for tabular data. His most recent work draws upon a particular kind of data: Nutrition Facts. Cycles of supply and demand motivate his focus on rhythm; pro wrestling, working out and vegan food in his current game called, Jakk in the boxxx. Andrew is currently a graduate student in the Digital Arts and New Media (DANM) program at the University of California Santa Cruz and is interested in interdisciplinary participatory culture.
