Exponential Growth, a collaborative work by Expanded Media Professors Andrew Deutsch and Eric Souther, Alfred University’s School of Art and Design, has been featured in the online art journal Digital America, founded in 2012 at the University of Richmond.

Together with Exponential Growth, the journal also has published an interview with Souther and introductions to both Souther and Deutsch’s work.

Digital America describes Digital Growth with the following introduction:

“In Exponential Growth (2020), Eric Souther creates an anxious series of video glitches by “throttling the networks bitrate and creating a feedback loop by taking the in back to the out” with an accompanying soundscape by Andrew Deutsch. The viewer is left with a rare view of “downsampling,” which occurs when internet service providers downgrade images based on connection speed. Futile attempts to interpret the images is almost frustrating and reveals empty promises of digital growth—we’re left ask: To what ends is digital growth beneficial? For whom?”
