An examination of the individual’s relation to the new ecology of our digital culture, an attempt to reconcile the overwhelming pace of our society’s ascent towards a technological singularity. "Nick Briz’s video 'A New Ecology for the Citizen of a Digital Age’' is an avalanche of collaged video images that merge into eye-popping patterns — nothing new, until Briz appears and, with a sweeping gesture, wipes out the imagery, leaving white space. Then the pictures crowd in again; there’s even a video under Briz’s shirt. It’s an affecting battle of man versus media." -The Boston Globe A New Ecology for the Citizen of a Digital Age screened at the Chicago Underground Film Festival, the Moving Image Film Festival in Toronto, The European Media Art Festival in Osnabrueck, Germany, the Milwaukee Underground Film Festival, Miden Video Art Festival in Kalamata, Greece, the Leeds International Film Festival and was a part of the "Refresh" exhibition at the Axiom Center for New Experimental Media in Boston. distributed by Video Out:
