S.A.S.E.

Marijke Appelman, Paul Branca, Jennifer Cane, Travis Hallenbeck and Guthrie Lonergan, Michael Mandiberg, Jennifer Delos Reyes, Gabriel Saloman, Suzie Silver, Lia Trinka-Browner, Jess Wilcox

S.A.S.E. uses the idea of the self addressed stamped envelope as its foundation (a method of distribution within the postal mail system that is always initiated by the one who wants to receive the information).

This method of distribution was (futilely) translated into a digital communication system, e-mail.

Eleven people were asked to organize an exhibition of images that would be contained within the space of an e-mail.

Ten e-mail exhibitions were created (each includes a selection of images, a statement, and a works list).

All the images were found online - either from web-sites or in e-mails.

 

Photos from Drawing Contemporaries are up on Flickr. I have also posted full res versions, and a video here

Drawing Contemporaries

 

I had a long discussion with several of the Research Fellows at Eyebeam about the best way to make master design files available for download. Flickr wont take an AI file, PSDs are just too big, and god forbid you try to upload the master files for your 2 minute video anywhere… We ended up bringing Bre Pettis and Zach Hoeken of Thingiverse.com into the discussion. But concluded that Thingiverse was really focused on 3D modeling, laser cutters, and 3D Printing. They welcomed me to put my Illustrator master files up there, but we all kind of agreed that it was the wrong audience.

 

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.

 

These pix were taken right at 6pm, so there was close to no one there yet. By 7pm, the room was packed. Thanks all for coming. The show is up through June 9th. Ping me if you want a walkthrough.

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.

It was recorded from the stream.  It is a little choppy, and is overdubbed with the live translation.  So its good if you speak Spanish
