Robert Whitman’s ‘Passport,’ in Two States at Once –

Nice article in the Times about Whitman’s latest piece.  I built and ran the video network that connected the two locations for the performance.  Scenes from each location were transmitted and shown live in the other location.

ITP Show in full swing

ITP’s end of semester show is all the rage at the moment. Been floating around playing with projects and taking some snapshots.

More soon but here is a teaser courtesy of Meredith Hasson’s Video Mosiac

ITP End of Year Events – Thesis Presentations and End of Semester Show

ITP Spring Show 2006
A two day exhibition of interactive sight, sound and physical objects from the student artists of ITP.

This event is free and open to the public. No need to RSVP.

ITP Thesis Presentations 2006
ITP’s graduating students will be presenting a wide variety of highly creative and interactive projects that they have constructed over the course of their final project seminars.

Students have been encouraged to undertake projects that bring together the conceptual and design issues that they have engaged in during their two years of study at ITP.

Projects will include installation based work, digital video and audio pieces, interactive 3D, games and educational applications, to name only a few.

ITP will be providing a live webcast of all the thesis presentations.

Tech Art January Roundup

artnet Magazine – Technical Knock-outs
Dorkbot, “Superlowrez” at vertexList and “Dewanatron” at Pierogi.
From the article:
For the show, vertexList brought aboard eight artists, among them the stalwarts of the Brooklyn art scene: Joe Amrhein, Brian Conley, Matt Freedman, Kristin Lucas, Jillian Mcdonald, Joe McKay, Akiko Sakaizumi and Jude Tallichet. All of them agreed to work with the same gadget for the project, a custom-built box of 12 x 14 electronic light-up “pixels.” Since this dimension is calculated to be just under the pixel-content of the normal computer cursor, the format is extremely constraining (additionally, each box has a chip that can hold just 1,984 “frames” of information.)

Interesting Art and Technology Lab

V2_ :

Seems like it might be a place similar to Eyebeam (in NYC).

From the site:
V2_, Institute for the Unstable Media, is an interdisciplinary center for art and media technology in Rotterdam (the Netherlands). Founded in 1981, V2_ is an organization that concerns itself with research and development in the field of art and media technology.
