Simon Denny: Full Participation

Employing a hybrid approach located somewhere between research project, retail display, and promotional campaign, Simon Denny's diverse artistic practice reflects on the production, distribution, and consumption of media in an age of accelerated technological obsolescence and relentless cultural overproduction.

Denny's recent works have included investigations into the form and "architecture" of the TV set itself (the physical depth of which, we are reminded, has shrunk along with the medium's loss of dominance as a content provider), the genre conventions of documentary, and the myriad processes by which content is translated from one medium to another. Other works explore the aesthetics of the glitch, moments of interference where the smooth flow of content breaks down, while still others mine the seemingly banal world of trade shows and industry publications.
