Evan Roth’s Ideas Worth Spreading was a stand-out piece in the F.A.T. GOLD five-year retrospective exhibition at Eyebeam in which visitors were invited to create and document their own fake TED Talk. In retrospect, the piece worked swimmingly. Not only have people been genuinely confused during the time of the exhibit as people Instagramed and tweeted themselves “doing TED Talks,” ANIMAL’s […]

ANIMAL favorite and F.A.T. artist Evan Roth has made you this lovely, lovely thing. This is really a deck of cards, a “pixel-for-pixel recreation” of Solitaire, the Windows 98 game, printed as genuine, official Bicycle® Playing Cards and  its visuals used with permission from Microsoft. It’s not the Solitaire “win” IRL sculpture, frozen mid-orgasmic screenshot, celebratory shooting off its […]

What if a van was rolling through and if you called the number on its side, you can project your ramblings for all the street to hear via a purposely rigged megaphone on its roof? F.A.T. artist Evan Roth just premiered this Free Speech experiment the Kunsthalle Museum last week in Vienna. Here’re the kind of things the Viennese […]
