Wild & Shit with Evan Wilder

Cloud People's definitive series on all that's wild and all that's shit in the New Jersey Pine Barrens continues overseas in Tracey Moberly's installation of mass-participation Tweet-Me-Up! at The Tanks, under London's Tate Modern. Episodes 3, 4, 5, 9, 11, 15, 16, 17 & 19 were on display.

The new episodes (coming fall 2012) exlore the joy of whistling, relics of rave ideals, misplaced plastic waste, and more pollution in the pines.

Tracey Moberly's show celebrated sub-cultures and countercultures through video, sound, image, text message and tweets. Over 160 artists were involved, including Tracey Moberly, Kirsty Hawkshaw (ex-Opus III and collaborator on Orbital's classic “Halcyon”), ex-Cabaret Voltaire's Stephen Mallinder with his collective Wrangler; The Pop Group's Mark Stewart now part of the New Banalists; the Human League and Heaven 17's Martyn Ware in an instagram collaboration with his daughter Elena; TV presenter and journalist Kirsty Allison; Damian Alban's African Express co-founder Steve Budd; Blur's ex-manager and Teardrop Explodes Dave Balfe; to name a few. In the cross-platform work duos and acting debuts' feature unexpected roles for the unlikely, from Captain Sensible to Goldie Lookin' Chain's Eggsy.

Also: Alka, Drexciyan DJ Stingray 313, Team Doyobi, The Multi-Purpose Solution, Phil Ritz, Chlliary Patenaude, Jason Carr, Ki Ra, Maya Moksha, Dev79, Chris Moss Acid, Marie A. Roberts, Toni-Lee Sangastiano, David Liebe Hart, C Sides, Helium Ointment, and Calla Donofrio amongst many others shared their work. Contributors come from as far afield as Eastern Siberia, Uzbekistan, New Jersey, Haiti, Trinidad and Japan.
