[ISEA95] Artists Statement: Shaolin Wooden Men — Ohar

Artists Statement

Screening

New pop media entities manufactured for you. We are never what you think we are. We inhabit the pop culture landscape of digital/analog media, integrated as new intelligent Super Deformed media bytes. Our mission is to reconstruct the sonic landscape in order to preserve imagination.

  • Shaolin Wooden Men (Australia)  Their acronym-pseudonym — S.W.M. — first appeared in 1994 on a self-titled audio CD release, followed by video clips and a second CD entitled The Hungry Forest in 1995. Described as new SD pop media entities with bodies made of sound, nobody knows their true identity. Soon they will perform a world tour on a silver disc.
