About Us

Onion Union is the collaborative effort of Winnipeg visualists PixelPusher and flamewar.

Formed in the fall of 2008; this projection producing duo delivers an in your face assault of fast paced glitchy images, 8bit noise, random pop culture references, obscure film clips, internet memes, data-moshing and other assorted bits of weirdness that at times can push the limits of what the human eye is designed to handle... in a good way!

Onion Union have been a fixture of Winnipeg events over the years, including the popular MEME festival. They have also taken the show on the road, having played at both Connect and Motion Notion festivals, in Saskatchewan and British Columbia respectively.
