BAM Visual Art is pleased to present Cryptophasia, the debut of a selection of moving image and interactive QR code print works by Lisa Gwilliam & Ray Sweeten (DataSpaceTime). In these new works the artists use current technologies to reconstruct original video as browser-based grids of animated GIFs and still images as data archives navigable through QR codes. The term cryptophasia refers to a language developed and spoken between twins – crypto, meaning secret, and phasia, meaning speech. This obscure but compelling phenomena offers a framework for the exhibition, which poses language and communication as encrypted closed systems to be intercepted.

About the artists
LISA GWILLIAM and RAY SWEETEN debuted as the collaborative duo DataSpaceTime in November 2011 with the exhibition “the optimal value for y” at Microscope Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. Gwilliam & Sweeten’s multi-channel video “Breakout”, commissioned by The Parrish Museum, is currently on view at New York City Center throughout 2015. Their work has also been featured in other recent exhibitions including “Altarations”, Schmidt Center Gallery of FAU, Florida; “Dialogics”, Rowan University Art Gallery, New Jersey; and “Engage Detroit”, Whitdel Arts, Michigan. The artists live and work in Brooklyn, New York. Lisa Gwilliam & Ray Sweeten (DataSpaceTime) are represented by Microscope Gallery.
