What does supertronic mean anyways?

Helped out at the Images Festival office today... nothing glamourous. Mostly just typing installation submissions into a database. My wrists KILL. Gooooo carpal tunnel.

It amuses me what some of these artists' come up with for titles for their artwork. It's late so I can only remember '3 Dimensional Supertronic Sound' (or something to that effect).

Reminds me of the website Effloresce Machina.

Quite ingeneous, I must admit. But do these people pull out their thesaurus and dictionaries when they put these titles together??

If it doesn't already exists, someone should build a database of colossally fecundive epochial-sounding -- yet lyrical -- words that will automatically name your installation for you.

Hmm... I feel another project coming along...
