Don Edler is screening film Devil You Know online at LA’s Hunter Shaw Fine Art, running January 10 to February 7, 2021.

The LA-based artist behind last November’s Two Minutes to Midnight solo exhibition collaborated with OpenAI’s GPT-3 language model to write the script, which is described as a “hybrid of political satire, experimental documentary, and speculative horror”.

Devil You Know presents a near-future dystopia where the existing structures of contemporary United States media and capitalist nationalism is propagated through automated misinformation.

The New Abnormal: Information warfare & our volatile political present in Don Edler’s Two Minutes to Midnight solo exhibition

11 November 2019

Don Edler‘s Two Minutes to Midnight solo exhibition was on at Los Angeles’ Hunter Shaw Fine Art, running September 8 to October 27.

Taking its title from the unnerving current setting of the Doomsday Clock, Two Minutes to Midnight addresses propaganda and information warfare in our volatile political present through video, sculpture and installation. From post-truth misinformation to climate change, Edler responds to our precarious closeness to societal catastrophe, a situation that is referred to by Doomsday Clock founders as a “new abnormal”. As stated in the exhibition press release:

“Edler applies an aesthetic sensibility which encapsulates the maddening polarity of “the new abnormal”, presenting an environment that is at once chaotic and austere, laughably absurd and deadly serious.”**
