I have been trying to find a way to distribute my CC licensed master files, from little Illustrator files, master video files, to the 500MB InDesign file for the Digital Foundations book (http://www.digital-foundations.net). This is an experiment. Because these are all graphics and master files, i am going to put them in “Other.” We’ll see how this goes.

My environmental focused plugins are included in the exhibition End of Oil at Exit Art. The opening is this Saturday, June 13th from 6-8. The exhibition runs from June 13 – July 31, 2009.

A project of SEA (Social-Environmental Aesthetics) , The End of Oil is an exhibition of photography, prints, videos, installations and new media that addresses human dependence on oil and other fossil fuels; the ramifications that this dependency has on the future of the environment and of global geopolitics; and the recent push towards viable alternative energy resources.

Tiananmen Square: Do you exclusively paint Thomas Kinkade paintings?

Tiananmen Square: Do you exclusively paint Thomas Kinkade paintings?

June 3, 2009

Four years ago, in preparation for a research visit to Shenzhen’s Dafen Painting Village, I requested that roughly a dozen Chinese painters paint a copy of the image of the man standing in front of the tanks during the Tiananmen Square protest on June 4, 1989. I did this partly out an interest in copies and reproductions and partly just to see if I could do it: the image is famous worldwide, but I have since learned it is virtually unknown under Chinese national censorship.

 

Drawing Contemporaries

Opening reception: Thurs., May 21, 6PM – 8PM

Drawing Contemporaries, curated by Eyebeam senior fellow Michael Mandiberg, is an exhibition of works on paper made by a peer group of new media artists who all make drawings, either as a primary object, or as an experimental step in their process. The artists often use computers or algorithms as a logic structure or drawing aid in a way that is foregrounded in these works. Many of these artists are Eyebeam affiliated, but all are contemporaries whose influences upon each other can be traced in this exhibition.

 

I know, I should write these more often, so there is less to digest in each one. Much activity of late:

1. Permanent State of Emergency

2. New Videos

3. Shows and talks

c.westcott i tried

Okay Mr or Mrs C. Westcott, I tried to mail you your Moleskine. Your bloody address was incorrect. And b/c you just put yr first initial, I can’t find you. You were at CAA. You were probably sitting in on the panel before mine on friday morning. Six degrees of separation: can we find C. Westcott?

 

Anyone who has followed this blog obviously knows that I am still working at Eyebeam, which means I was awarded a Senior Fellowship.  It started some time ago, but Eyebeam is making a celebration out of it for the Senior Fellows and the incoming Residents.

Eyebeam awards more than $175,000 in stipends to 10 artists working at the intersection of art and technology. The artists will be honored during an invitation-only reception and presentation.

Eyebeam, 540 W. 21st St. (btw 10th and 11th Aves.)
