The New Romantics is an exhibition exploring the ways in which contemporary artists using digital media engage the body, representations of nature, poetic irony, and expressions of individuality as originally expressed in 19th Century Romanticism. By drawing equivalences between then and now, this exhibition identifies a critical precedent for artists today that are responding to their ever changing technological environment. Just as the Romantics responded to the industrial revolution, this group of artists are similarly responding to the current information revolution.

Kari Mulholland over at TED made a short behind-the-scenes documentary about Stranger visions, check it out!

 

First off, a really nice post on the smithsonian blog about my work:

 

WNYC and PRI’s Studio 360 did a great feature on my Stranger Visions project:

I received an anonymous sample of hair, and made a portrait of this person’s DNA – see the results below!

 

Check out my latest work on Stranger Visions at Clocktower Gallery in lower Manhattan.

It’s open tues-fri noon to 5pm.

Lots of great press for the project in the past week:

 

I am excited to participate in the Eyebeam annual showcase, opening Thursday! They are moving from a twice a year open studios show to a once a year retrospective of the work of residents and fellows from the past year. It is a great group of artists and looks like it will be a fantastic show.

I will be showing the latest developments in my Stranger Visions project, unveiling the first portrait derived from found material as well as a video documenting the process.
