LuckyPDF recently interviewed French artist Pierre Huyghe for an article for i-D magazine, he made reference to the youtube culture of fan-editing and off-handedly mentioned a typical video.."Now everybody is editing, its the new graffiti! People take Transformers and play it backwards with the voice of Goddard over it, whatever". For PAMI (Peckham Artists Moving Image) and the Peckham and Nunhead Free Film Festival, 2011, LuckyPDF will present a new work at the MOCA London project space: Android Crabs; dedicated to our friend Pierre Huyghe The video can be seen on Youtube.
