About Flipworks from :

“In celebration of Pleasure Dome’s 20th birthday, we invited six artists who helped define our history to help shape our future by participating in this very special project, Flipworks. In January we sent six Flip Ultra HD Pocket Digital Camcorders (which can record up to two hours of HD video) to six internationally celebrated artists. They were asked to create an original one-of-a kind video on the Flip camcorder over a five-month period. On June 22nd, the actual cameras containing the newly commissioned artworks on their flash drives will be auctioned at Mercer Union to benefit Pleasure Dome’s ongoing programming activities. There will be a one-hour screening of excerpts from all six works at 7:30pm followed by the Silent Auction from 8:30—9pm with cash bar and hors d’oeuvres.”
