Sosolimited is a crew of MIT grads turned audio visual artists – Eric Gunther, Justin Manor and John Rothenberg – with backgrounds in physics, architecture, computer science, media arts and music. They say that TV is garbage – and they want to turn that shit into gold. So they create live remixes of broadcasts using pure information to filter and direct the look and feel of their videos: deconstructing the 2008 presidential debates by using word-count as an aesthetic variable, for example. “Essentially what we’re trying to do is like take the television studio and turn up the acid,” Rothenberg says. In this episode of Motherboard, we get an inside look at how Sosolimited is turning televised garbage into gold.
