I think summer 2002 when we went on the summer of HTML tour with BEIGE PROGRAMMING ENSEMBLE we also did this small installation in an awesome place in kansas city that I think was called "your face". the space was cool, some nice motivated kids doin it. Anyways it was I think the 3rd or 4th thing we ever did in a gallery: a little room to take a nap or read our comics, watch cartoons. "No Assholes Allowed" like those posters you put on your door to keep the jerks out. Also I think we did a version of this in Pittsburgh at Future Tenant but I can't remember.

The Art Review 25

This was a group show to go along with ArtReview's 25 young emerging artists article. It was at Phillips de Pury in new york in early 2005. We had a room playing clips from our Free Music Videos event on one wall, and on the other wall was the premier of a video we made in high school called "commune". on the floor were some weird tv static kidz plus our p-unit mixtape on top of a quilt we found at a flea market.

Here are some pics of our solo show in NYC called "3-D" at Foxy Productions. Here is a link that has some text they wrote about it. This happened in april of 2004 I believe. Lots of little drawings, a "video comic" which was 6 channels of video meant to be read in sequence like panels of a comic. Plus it was the first appearance of the RGB "cubez". there were some big spray-painting stencils. We also had a treasure chest with lots of hand-made comics and video mixes and mixtape clubs.

Beaver College Art Show

This was one of the satellite group shows that coincided with the Beautiful Losers show in Cincinnati in Spring 2004. We went there for a week and had some important times hanging with Paper Rodeo friends, Space1026 friends, plus new friends. It's hard to tell from the pictures what we did but it was a big old cave called the "Mockbee" and we painted a big garf head. there were also pigs in jackets, a 3-d stuffed jacket character, a video mix, plus lots of other paintings/spray paintings I forget.

This was a group show in 2004 in Pittsburgh at the Three Rivers Art Gallery, curated by the awesome dude Alex Smith. well it was tons of young artists: localz plus some others, and we met a lot of cool people because of it. The thing we made was a big "Peace Puppy" you could crawl inside and chill out to the infinite traveler video and the dog talked, I think it said "I'm sorry but I have to eat you now. Crawl inside my mouth" but I can't remember.

Reverse Engineers 2004

This was a group show we did at Antioch College curated by Weird Shadow. We did this the same week as the Beaver College show: some spray paintings, a video mix, garf inside gumby inside garf inside infinity, a rave painting telling the true tale of one raver's final trip. That painting was a collaboration with Shana Moulton and was done originally for "microrave" which was curated by C.A.R.S. and occurred at Flywheel in easthampton, MA in late 2003.

The MarioMovie was a collaboration between Paper Rad and Cory of Beige. It is a hacked mario brothers nintendo cartridge, but instead of a game we turned it into a 15 minute narrative movie. we programmed the music, programmed a lot of the graphics (with cory's help), wrote the script, and designed the installation, which happened at Deitch Project's Grand St. Gallery in January of 2005. Here are some installation shots plus some screen shots. Soon cory and Paper Rad will post somethng with way more detailed info, but for now the source code I believe can be downloaded here.

Paperrad in London at the Horse Hopsital

we made this for a show September 2004 at the Horse Hopsital in London, England. It's a video projection on a really old projector (thanks Paul) of an animation of a piece of pizza sitting on a table at a pizza parlor, but the pizza toppings are real paintings.
