Rules of Crime: Kayle Brandon & Heath Bunting
September 18 – November 13 2004
Heath Bunting emerged from the 1980s art scene committed to building open, democratic communications systems and social contexts. Throughout his career, he has explored multiple media including graffiti and performance art and has staged numerous interventionist projects, as well as being a pioneer in the field of Internet Art. Bunting began collaborating with artist Kyle Brandon in 2001.
In Rules of Crime, the New Museum will present three projects co-produced by Brandon and Bunting which address political and informational borders. BorderXing serves as a pratical guide to crossing major international borders, legally or illegally. In the accompanying Botanist’s Guide to BorderXing, Bunting and Brandon offer tips on making use of various flora and fauna around international borders. The Status Project explores how the accessible nature of personal information available on the internet and how it can be easily used to create or disseminate identity. Rules of Crime: Kayle Brandon & Heath Bunting is organized by Rachel Greene, New Museum Curatorial Fellow and Director of Rhizome.org.
