throwntogetherness presents screenings in Philadelphia, PA and Portland, OR, co-organized by local new media collectives, Lino Kino in Philadelphia and Mobile Projection Unit in Portland, and curator and art historian, Laurel V. McLaughlin. During the pandemic, the collectives and McLaughlin speculated upon commonalities in new media practices from Philadelphia and Portland—the DIY spirit, emphasis on ritual (whether formal, spiritual, or everyday), and new media experimentality—and proposed a bicoastal collaboration. The screenings exhibit works that emerged prior to and during the experience of the 2020 global COVID-19 pandemic. throwntogetherness asks: what does it mean to make mediated work from a place, space, and time? Pre-COVID-19, this question might have been answered through regional specificities, collaborations, and shared aesthetics. During COVID, answers remain in flux as local mobilities, livelihoods, and ideologies shift on unstable terrain.
