Decorative Newsfeeds is a networked installation employing a live text based news feed from the Internet re-presented in the context of the Medialounge gallery. The news feed is projected on both sides of a screen suspended in the middle of the darkened space, and accompanied by the sound of data passing. The animated sequence of textual characters are constantly updated and follow a series of shifting decorative curves; global headlines overlap themselves and each other rendering the text beautiful but obscured.

Jon Thomson and Alison Craighead work primarily with video, sound and electronic networked space to create gallery and site-specific artworks and installations. They have exhibited widely both nationally and internationally, having earned an excellent reputation as leading UK practitioners in the field of New Media art.

Much of Jon and Alison’s gallery and web-based works follow the artistic traditions of appropriation and manipulation while exploring the myriad ways in which new technologies and electronic global communications networks are changing the way we perceive the world around us.

Recent exhibitions include a presentation of their major new work, Short Films about Flying for Mobile Home Gallery in London, and a mini-survey of three recent installations at V2 in Rotterdam; group exhibitions and special commissions include 010101: Art in Technological Times, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Art & Money On-line, Tate Britain; Beuro Friedrich, Berlin; Game-show at the Massachusetts Musuem of Modern Art; Re:mote at The Photographers Gallery, London; BananaRAM in Ancona, Italy and Mobile Phonics at z33, Belgium.
