I did an interview with Nadja Popovich on my work and the work of F.A.T. Lab for the Guardian. Article here.
I also did an interview with Jacki Lyden from National Public Radio’s ‘All Things Considered, Weekend Edition’. You can listen to an archived version below (full article here):
Lastly, I contributed some work to a very interesting book that comes out October 8th. The Best American Infographics, edited by Gareth Cook with introduction by David Byrne, is published by Mariner Books and can be pre-ordered here.
I’m honored to be showing at the inaugural exhibition at the gallery of the new Parsons campus in Paris. The exhibition will consist of pieces ranging from work that started while I was a graduate student at Parsons (in NYC) leading up to work that I have made while living in Paris the last three years. The exhibition also serves as an overview of my past work in anticipation of my first major solo exhibition in Paris at XPO Gallery (opening October 10). The opening is from 6pm to 9pm tomorrow (September 6), if you’re in Paris please join.

I am using a modified version of Rafael Rozendaal’sart website sales contract for the sale of web based art pieces. Rafael’s model is an important one that allows for the collection of Internet based art while still keeping that art available online for free for all to view. My fork of this contract is free to use and modify as well and can be downloaded here (.pdf). Both contracts are conceptually similar and involve the purchase of art websites in exchange for the transfer of the domain name (the URL), credit in the TITLE tag, digital files on a media device (in this case a wifi router) and a certificate of authenticity.

OFFLINE ART: new2 was one of the more interesting art openings I have been to in a long time, due primarily to Aram’s concept and curation, Olia Lialina’s opening remarks and the vision of XPO Gallery. I was very happy to be exhibiting with Aram along side Cory Arcangel, Kim Asendorf, Claude Closky, Constant Dullaart, Dragan Espenschied, Faith Holland, JODI, Olia Lialina, Jonas Lund, Phil Thompson, Emilie Gervais & Sarah Weis.
I’m excited to announce the launch of a new series of pieces commissioned by the Museum of Moving Image in New York. A Tribute To Heather is a collection of ten new One Gif Compositions created from single animated gif files found on Heather’s Animations. Heather’s Animations is a hand crafted personal archive of early Animated Gifs that has remained online, free for all and relatively unchanged since 1999.
The exhibition can be seen online at http://tribute-to-heather.com and on the 50 foot projection wall at the Museum of Moving Image until June 30. Each piece will be exhibited for a full day on a two-week cycle. More info can be found on the Museum of Moving Image’s site here.
Big thanks to the Museum of Moving Image for commissioning the series and Jason Eppink for all of his help in making it happen.

I’m really excited to return to my alma mater for this solo exhibition at the University of Maryland’s Kibel Gallery. Photos coming soon.
“Casual Computing is a selection of new and existing works from Evan Roth that highlight his interest in the role of technology in society. With pieces including prints, sculptures, videos and websites, his work is less defined by medium and genre than by its appropriation of popular culture. Whether realized online, in the studio, in the city or at the airport, Roth questions the sacred nature of technology and experiments with showing it creative disrespect. Roth is fascinated with the misuse of seemingly rigid systems, and the effect that philosophies from hacker communities can have when applied outside of computer screens. Casual Computing highlights a changing and empowering approach towards technology as it becomes more commonplace.
Casual Computing will be on display at the University of Maryland’s Kibel Gallery in the School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation from January 23, 2013 – May 10, 2013. This will be Roth’s first time displaying work in UMD’s School of Architecture since he graduated there in 2000. This exhibition, curated by Ronit Eisenbach, is an exciting homecoming for the artist.”
