Lost for “Words” EVERYNONE at the Guggenheim

The New York creative production team, EVERYNONE, was featured and celebrated for their conceptual piece Words at the Guggenheim Museum on October 21st, 2010, as one of the top twenty five selected creative videos in YouTube Play. The first Creative Video Biennial began as a submission with over 23,000 entries in which the international jury, such as Nancy Spectory, Marilyn Minter, Douglas Gordon, Takashi Murakami and Laurie Anderson, choose the most imaginative and exploratory videos that utilized YouTube as a platform for video art.

The masterminds behind EVERYNONE’s Words, Will Hoffman, Daniel Mercadante, and Julius Metoyer III, presented a conceptual journey discovering the understandings of language and visualization. The diagram behind Words demonstrated an organic sublimation of being lost for words, but focused on the experience of the visual connections in which we see words being acted out through video. As many of the shortlisted videos for the YouTube Play had elements of musical editing, technical animation, and image effects, however EVERYNONE’s Words is a simple and unique visual narrative and a new experimental puzzle for video making.
