I'm in this show at Vertex (with a bunch of artists I really like) and will be showing new Monitor Tracings of 8-Bit related gear... The official description:

About Blip: The Blip Festival is a four-day international cultural event taking place in New York City this November into December, focusing on the 8-bit scene - musicians and artists who use low-bit videogame and computer hardware as their creative tools. The festival is the widest-reaching event in the history of the form, boasting a roster of over 40 international artists performing and exhibiting from places as diverse as Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Argentina, and across the United States.

Update: I just put a bunch of scans of the Monitor Tracings up here.

Update #2: The show's going to move on to Philadelphia's Drexel University, June 23 - July 25, 2008, and they're doing a catalogue, so I'll post more info on that when the time comes.
