Emerging ideas on digital culture from artists, writers and image makers are on tap and open for public view online in Daily Rush,  a web series for experimental media and moving image presented by the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit.

Daily Rush is curated by Pat Elifritz, Curator of New Media and Technology. New seasons of Daily Rush are released semiannually, with recent and commissioned works of new media and emerging ideas on digital culture by artists, writers, and image makers from Detroit and beyond.

For its second season, Daily Rush premieres four works that reimagine place as protagonist by artists living, working, or otherwise engaged in Detroit. This season is a suite of perspectives, images, and digital artifacts, each positioned against a specific historical or social backdrop sourced from Detroit’s metropolitan area. Together, the newly commissioned works offer an interface between regional narrative, lived experience, and the city’s sustained reach in digital culture.
