Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies
Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies Exhibition

Current works by Margie Hughto, Darcy Gerbarg, Barbara Nessim, Lia Cook, Vibeke Sorensen and Linda Law

The exhibition “Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies” will feature the work of six pioneering artists with distinct individual styles. They have been recognized by museums, galleries and institutions around the world. The range of the media employed by these artists reaches from the earliest fine art techniques to the latest digital technologies: from clay to environmental interactive video and Immersive 3D, from pen and ink notebook drawings to wall sized, hand colored printouts and paintings, from digital photography to tapestry portraits incorporating neurological data. What all these talented artists have in common is the employment of digital technology to push art in bold new directions, engaging audiences in multi-dimensional experiences of form, texture, color, and space.

U-GRUVE: Interactive Soundtracks for Public Spaces


*******  UPDATE: 28 Apr 2016 *******

Greetings everyone, and many thanks to those of you who have signed up! I wanted to let you know that the U-GRUVE app is now available on the App Store for download.
Here is the link to the Preview; you can access iTunes from there:

ALSO

Please be aware that our schedule has been evolving, and we've decided to roll-out compositions/locations one-by-one over the course of the festival. Hopefully that doesn't cause any inconvenience; if so, please accept my apologies.

That said, for today, 29 Apr 2016, we are opening with the work of Milica Paranosic, whose piece lives on the Upper West Side in Riverside Park on down to the Hudson Greenway, between 89th and 96th Streets. It's just a short walk west from Broadway, where the 1 Train stops at both 86th and 96th Streets.

Have fun ad please do let us know what you think!

*****************************************

Featuring original audio works by Michael Durek, Milica Paranosic, Jesse Stiles, Norville Parchment, Richard Rodkin, and Mick Sussman

U-GRUVE is an ongoing, public audio installation, marking its official launch with New York Creative Tech Week 2016.

U-GRUVE blurs the line between listening and performing, and turns your normal, passive, listening experience into one that is enriching, memorable, and unique to your interactions, ultimately strengthening your connection to the places you love.

Now, with your GPS-enabled mobile device (currently iPhone only), you can create soundscapes with original music composed specifically for a select number of well-known public spaces throughout Manhattan. And because the arrangement is controlled by your unfolding path within the space, the resulting music that you hear may be entirely different from what someone else hears.

Please visit u-gruve.com, follow us on Twitter @ugruve or "like" us Facebook for download instructions once the app is live in the App Store.

During Creative Tech Week the following locations will be live per the schedule below,  and will be accessible within the location's normal hours of operation:

Glaciers
Postmasters Gallery presents Glaciers, the first solo exhibition by the American artist Zach Gage, developed from his series of human-query works (2009-16). 

Zach Gage (b.1985) is a conceptual artist, game designer, programmer, and educator from New York City. His work often explores the powerful intersection of systems and social dynamics, through both interrogating existing systems in digital spaces, and framing entirely new systems through games. 

Zach Gage's Glaciers (2015-16), a series of digital poems-as-wall-clocks grew out of his explorations in slow generative art and his longterm obsession with trying to make large-scale data systems more accessible by focusing not on their broad statistical natures, but instead on finding their humanity with narrowly tailored queries. 

Each Glacier is a unique poem generated via the top three autocompleted results for a specific search query on Google, presented on an e-ink screen. While they appear static on the wall, each actually refreshes itself once a day. While this construction process means that the poems may change, because of the immense amount of dataflow constructing the most popular autocompletes, it's likely that they will not be altered for years or even decades. Still, one day you'll wake up, the poem will be different, the long moment passed. 

The show will also feature two of his earlier human-query works, his pioneering twitter bot Best Day Ever (2009) and his twitter-based fortune teller #fortune (2014-15).

Beautiful Interfaces: The privacy paradox at REVERSE
Beautiful Interfaces: The privacy paradox is a new media art exhibition curated by Helena Acosta and Miyö Van Stenis, accessible via a wireless network from hacked wifi routers, which are not connected to the Internet. Each router has a private network which the visitor must connect to on their own devices, cell phones or ipads, in order to view the exhibition. The show explores the concept of privacy versus self­-exposure, through a platform that allows distribution and creates content in a more independent and anonymous way. In the era of algorithm prediction, all our online actions have a digital trace, used by companies and governments to predict our behaviors. The internet's purpose in the media is to collect and quantify each action for surveillance. The exhibition wants to propose answers about dichotomous situations between private and public. The exhibition is a decentralized network to show and distribute new media art, a virtual island on the web composed for a platform of 5 private networks. Daily ordinary online social practices, could look like harmless actions through a naive eye, but contain the potential for unexpected consequences, when they are traced and connected by algorithmic surveillance systems. In less than 5 years facial recognition algorithms will be ubiquitous. Recently Facebook added facial recognition technology to their platform to allow themselves to be more deeply integrated into our smartphones. These new developments will allow easy reconstruction of any random encounter we have on the street that has been captured by a camera. Given this insertion into our social communication practices on the Social Web and hence increasing disclosure of personal information online, the 'privacy paradox' suggests that despite Internet users' concerns about privacy, their behaviors do not reflect those concerns.

Exhibition: The Dolls House

TRANSFER IS PLEASED TO PRESENT ‘THE DOLLS HOUSE’ THE GALLERY’S FIRST SOLO EXHIBITION WITH CLAUDIA HART INCLUDING A SPECIAL SOUND TRACK BY KURT HENTSCHAGER.

GALLERY HOURS: Saturdays 12-6PM and by Appointment 

‘The Dolls House’ is a new series of video, drawing and sculptural work from Claudia Hart, inspired by her media ballet ‘The Dolls’ which is based in the philosophical idea of the “eternal return” – the notion that history endlessly renews itself through a process of decadence, decay and rebirth. To embody this, Hart has molded mathematical cycles into visual form, creating rhythmic, animations of pulsing patterns which are physically mesmerizing and intentionally hypnotic as a result of their algorithmic qualities.

Hart imagines an abstract computer warehouse filled with old dollhouses culled from the junk heap of some future history. She scoured Google’s 3D Warehouse – available as shareware for all users of Internet – for architectural monuments from a decadent history, past empires from all over the world. These include The Arch of Labna (a Mesoamerican archaeological site and ceremonial center of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization), the Roman Forum-of-Ceasar, Marie-Antoinette’s Le Petit Trianon (the small chateau on the grounds of Louis XIV’s Versaille, where she dressed as a milkmaid with her ladies-in-waiting), a Queen Anne House from Victorian England; the Dragomir Mansion from Bucharest; and the Paulwall House – still standing in our own ruined Detroit.

Like her doll houses, Hart’s 3D modelled tutus are also drawn from the scion of a fallen empire: the gowns of Margaret Theresa of Spain, among the last of the Spanish Habsburgs. This child princess was the central figure in the famous painting Las Meninas, a canonical masterpiece by the great 17th-century court painter, Diego Velazquez, and the subject of many of his paintings. Hart’s Velazquez princess dresses are modeled by computer and produced as mixed-media works on paper with projection mapping, and 3D printed sculpture for the exhibition.

Hart’s brightly colored, algorithmic flickering patterns are the ultimate component of her contemplation on the passage of time and the death of kings. The animated patterns are based on the symbols of further collapsed empires – from the Faberge eggs of The House of Romanov to the banners and heraldry of Gengis Kahn and the Mongol Empire. Distributed among these are the current logos and graphical icons of our own multinationals corporations. The end result is in some ways like a stroll through Times Square or a glitzy night in Vegas. But it is also paradoxically and strangely quite trance inducing and meditative, a vehicle for some kind of enlightenment.

A full inventory of work from ’The Dolls House’ is available from the gallery. Please inquire with the director@transfergallery.com to request information.

ABOUT THE ARTIST :::
Claudia Hart has been active as an artist, curator and critic since 1988. She creates virtual representations that take the form of 3d imagery integrated into photography, multi-channel animation installations, performances and sculptures using advanced production techniques such as Rapid Prototyping, CNC routing and augmented-reality custom apps. Her works deal with issues of representation, the role of the computer in shifting contemporary values about identity and the real, and specifically questions ideas about what might be considered “natural.” Her project is to feminize the masculinist culture of technology by interjecting emotional subjectivity into what is typically the overly-determined Cartesian world of digital design.

Kurt Hentschalger, who created the music for “The Dolls,” is an audio visual artist whose work has been shown internationally since the the late 80s. For further information: www.kurthentschlager.com

Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies
Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies Exhibition

Current works by Margie Hughto, Darcy Gerbarg, Barbara Nessim, Lia Cook, Vibeke Sorensen and Linda Law

The exhibition “Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies” will feature the work of six pioneering artists with distinct individual styles. They have been recognized by museums, galleries and institutions around the world. The range of the media employed by these artists reaches from the earliest fine art techniques to the latest digital technologies: from clay to environmental interactive video and Immersive 3D, from pen and ink notebook drawings to wall sized, hand colored printouts and paintings, from digital photography to tapestry portraits incorporating neurological data. What all these talented artists have in common is the employment of digital technology to push art in bold new directions, engaging audiences in multi-dimensional experiences of form, texture, color, and space.

A survey of Storytelling in augmented and virtual space
Over the past year, virtual reality and other platforms for immersive storytelling have become the latest ‘in’ technologies everywhere from Silicon Valley to film festivals. With access to some of the latest technology, and unconstrained by the pressures of profits or bottom lines, the ITP community has been able to research, create and experiment with many of these tools. From these investigations has emerged a lot of useful insight about what works, what doesn’t, and some thoughts for going forward.

This panel discussion will include current ITP students, alumni and faculty who are using emerging technologies in service of new forms of storytelling. Covering everything from augmented reality to interactive documentary, virtual reality games to 360 video, panelists will shed light on working with these different forms and how they give rise to different kinds of stories. Current students will show their progress on thesis projects dedicated to exploring how to tell immersive stories.

The panel will be moderated by Gabe Barcia-Colombo (ITP Faculty), and feature Todd Bryant (ITP adjunct), Julia Irwin (ITP research fellow), and three currrent students (Nicholas Hubbard, Jamie Ruddy, and Shaun Axani). VR Projects will be set up on the ITP floor for guests to demo from David Gochfeld, Yurika Malase, Seth Kranzler, Rebecca Lieberman, and Nikolaj Petersen.


Bios:

Gabriel Barcia-Colombo is a mixed media artist whose work focuses on collections, memorialization and the act of leaving one's digital imprint for the next generation. His work takes the form of video sculptures, immersive performances, large scale projections and vending machines that sell human DNA. His work plays upon this modern exigency in our culture to chronicle, preserve and wax nostalgic, an idea which Barcia-Colombo renders visually by “collecting” human portraits on video. 

Todd Bryant: An award winning screenwriter, director and producer of narrative video work, Todd hails from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina where he spent the majority of his youth exploring and trying to get lost in the woods.  A current resident of Brooklyn and a recent graduate of the Interactive Telecommunications Program at the Tisch School of the Arts in NYU he continues to employ those innate proclivities through creative coding and the construction of tangible interfaces for video art. 

Julia Irwin is a virtual reality filmmaker and new media artist in Brooklyn, NY. She is currently a Research Fellow at NYU Tisch’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) where she researches emerging cinematic techniques for virtual reality filmmaking and documentary. She has taught workshops internationally on documentary filmmaking for VR and will be adjunct faculty at ITP in the fall, co-teaching a class called Alt Docs: Inventing New Formats for Non-Fiction Storytelling. Her graduate school thesis was an interactive VR documentary about scars and the stories of their origin, which she completed as an Artist in Residence at Specular Projects, a studio focused on experimental VR filmmaking. 

Nicholas Hubbard makes art at the intersections of the found and the fabricated, the contemporary and the historical. This takes many forms including solo performance, interactive installations, 360º video, and virtual reality experiences. His work has become increasingly concerned with promoting the lessons of history to citizens of the present, and how this can be achieved through technology.
 
Jamie Ruddy is a story junkie. After graduating from NYU film school, she wrote a screenplay for Universal Studios and directed short films, commercials and a feature length documentary. She has returned to NYU for the masters program at ITP where her focus is on interactive storytelling. Recent projects include: Light as a Feather (VR film) and Close Encounters of the Radio Kind (AI).

Shaun Axani is a creative technologist and storyteller based in New York and Toronto. With a film and music background, Shaun came to ITP to explore interactive storytelling, but his work has spanned most facets of the diverse program, from physical to digital. He's made toys for children with disabilities, laser cut fungus for fridge magnets, tracked data related to cultural appropriation on social media, and created an interactive music making device based on the beat users are walking at. His thesis project, Quinn, was just featured at the Tribeca Interactive Playground.

Midnight Moment

On April 1, 2016 Soundwalk Collective and Times Square Arts will present JUNGLE-IZED, a month-long interactive multi-sensory art installation that will transform Times Square, transporting close to a half a million visitors daily to the heart of the Amazon. Presented in collaboration with David de Rothschild, and in partnership with The Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC), Times Square Arts, Audio-Technica, and CXA+ART, this immersive installation includes a participatory audio experience and an interactive video to encourage a conversation with nature and to heighten awareness of the environmental impact of climate change.

As part of the Times Square Arts’ At the Crossroads program, which includes installations and performances on the public plazas of Times Square, visitors will be invited to take self-guided audio tours of the Amazon by downloading the JUNGLE-IZED mobile app. From noon to midnight throughout April visitors can also borrow a pair of premium Audio-Technica headphones from the official JUNGLE-IZED kiosk located on 7th Avenue between 43rd and 44th Street, to begin the journey through a virtual soundscape that superimposes the Amazon ecosystem upon an eight-square block area of Times Square.

Available through the JUNGLE-IZED mobile app, the virtual soundscape is composed by Soundwalk Collective and recorded by internationally acclaimed sound artist Francisco López. As visitors walk throughout Times Square, the voices of Shipibo shamans and narration by Amazon experts Jeremy Narby and Daniel Pinchbeck will guide them along a jungle tour and into a conversation with nature. The use of Audio-Technica headphones provides an end-to-end experience and ensures that none of the Amazon’s auditory brilliance is lost along the way.

Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous (LASER)

Come hear from noted new media curator Christiane Paul of the Whitney, learn about the fascinating kinetic laser light sculptures of Norman Ballard, and the large scale augmented reality sculptures created with 3D rendering software by artist Michael Rees.  We'll gather in the home of Ellen Levy, President Emerita of the College Art Association.  Contact levy@nyc.rr.com for details.

We'll gather in the studio of Ellen Levy, artist and Past President of the College Art Association where Ellen and Patricia Olynyk co-convene the LASERS.

Each LASER gathering provides short 10- to 20-minute talks on art/science topics and the opportunity to network with cutting-edge artists, scientists, and researchers in an informal setting. Passionate participants are eager to share their ideas with you! Audience members are invited to “pitch” their own work, events, and activities to the group as well.

Founded in 2008 by LASER Chair Piero Scaruffi on behalf of Leonardo/ISAST, LASERs are now happening in over a dozen locales nationally and internationally: University of San Francisco, Stanford University, UC Berkeley, UCLA, UC Davis, UC Santa Cruz, New York City, London, Tacoma, Toronto, Montreal and Kansas State University.

Performing Systems: Jonas Bers

RSVP for Invitation, limited capacity.

Sign up at http://movingpictures.gallery

Livestream available via http://movingpictures.gallery

Moving Pictures Gallery is pleased to announce our second Performing Systems. A single channel audiovisual performance by Jonas Bers will be recorded and streamed before a live audience. Excerpts from the projections will then be exhibited as unique, single edition artworks. The performance and exhibition are presented as a Bronx, NY satellite for Creative Tech Week, NYC.

Performing Systems is a conceptual experiment in which artists improvise within the Moving Pictures Gallery platform to measure cultural value in a post-blockchain era.  

Bers’ video and sound feed will be recorded, then excerpted; these singular media artworks will be archived when they are uploaded to a secure, permanent storage system and assigned a unique code - the “hash”.  

The editioned works will be exhibited, and available for purchase for the duration of Creative Tech Week.   

Moving Pictures Gallery is working with Artlery and Ascribe.io to enable the one-to-one valuation of digital media artworks as single edition art objects. Together we are mapping digital media art to cryptocurrency, investigating how they substantiate one another.

Featuring original audio works by Michael DurekMilica ParanosicJesse StilesNorville ParchmentRichard Rodkin, and Mick Sussman

U-GRUVE is an ongoing, public audio installation, marking its official launch with New York Creative Tech Week 2016.

U-GRUVE blurs the line between listening and performing, and turns your normal, passive, listening experience into one that is enriching, memorable, and unique to your interactions, ultimately strengthening your connection to the places you love.

Now, with your GPS-enabled mobile device (currently iPhone only), you can create soundscapes with original music composed specifically for a select number of well-known public spaces throughout Manhattan. And because the arrangement is controlled by your unfolding path within the space, the resulting music that you hear may be entirely different from what someone else hears.

Please visit u-gruve.com, follow us on Twitter @ugruve or "like" us Facebook for download instructions once the app is live in the App Store.

During Creative Tech Week the following locations will be live per the schedule below,  and will be accessible within the location's normal hours of operation:

The Wayfinding Lab
The Wayfinding Project is initiated by John Kuo Wei Tchen and the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, and launches with an exhibition by artist Beatrice Glow with AR/VR features creating a space to promote curiosity, research, and decolonize New York's history.  From March-December 2016, the exhibition doubles as a lab hosting collaborative research to explore the many facets of Indigenous life along the Lenape Trail (present-day Broadway) before and after Henry Hudson's "discovery" in 1609. The lab usestechnologies—time-tested and cutting edge—to reconstruct one block of Broadway with geo-data in augmented/virtual reality to simultaneously overlay the pasts and futures of Mannahatta/Manhattan. The installation will evolve over the course of its nine-month run, incorporating work by Lenape and Pacific scholars, experts, and culture bearers and Algonquian language scholars, digital cartographers, and communities, who will piece together the surviving historical fragments of land dispossession, dislocation, and diasporas. Their combined findings will inform the creation of additional augmented/virtual reality experiences that will contribute to the envisioning and shaping of an Indigenous futurism.

Please see www.apa.nyu.edu to plan your visit.

Artist Beatrice Glow will be at the gallery to share Augmented and Virtual Reality Demonstration Sessions Monday, May 2nd & Friday, May 6th 2-5PM.

Prerogatives of Power: The Good, The Bad and The Perturbed
The Prerogatives of Power: The Good, The Bad and The Perturbed is a multi-screen installation that displays full motion digital video portraits of political leaders from around the world (Obama, Putin, Trump, Cameron, Xi Jinping, Assad, Merkel, Hassan Rouhani, Hollande, Kim Jung Un etc.). An essential part of the total experience is the manipulated audio and video signal in real time. A camera based motion tracking system allows the movement of the gallery visitor to ‘preturb’ the digital video signal, scrambling the video and audio signal to create colorized effects and percussive distortions of the spoken word. For example, in an interview, the embattled president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad is quoted saying: “We do not use barrel bombs.” The motion tracking will trigger the breakup of Assad’s digital video image and the repetition of key words (e.g. b-b-b-barrel, b-b-b-bombs etc.). Wall mounted LCD displays have the visual impact as a gallery filled with large-scale paintings. In this instance the “painting” is full motion digital colorized video pixels. This dramatic format functions as a critique of the use and abuse of power. This multi-screen installation is an homage to Antonio Muntadas’ 1987 installation The Board Room. The viewer’s motion perturbs the audio and digital video signal disrupting and interrupting the speech transforming messaging and political propaganda into visual and auditory artifacts with a separate aesthetic.

Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies
Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies Exhibition

Current works by Margie Hughto, Darcy Gerbarg, Barbara Nessim, Lia Cook, Vibeke Sorensen and Linda Law

The exhibition “Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies” will feature the work of six pioneering artists with distinct individual styles. They have been recognized by museums, galleries and institutions around the world. The range of the media employed by these artists reaches from the earliest fine art techniques to the latest digital technologies: from clay to environmental interactive video and Immersive 3D, from pen and ink notebook drawings to wall sized, hand colored printouts and paintings, from digital photography to tapestry portraits incorporating neurological data. What all these talented artists have in common is the employment of digital technology to push art in bold new directions, engaging audiences in multi-dimensional experiences of form, texture, color, and space.

Space Between the Skies
Space Between the Skies employs the power of simulation-based technologies to remember rather than forget. The featured artworks explore the possibility of using VR and simulation-based technology as tools for commemoration and archiving, rather than for more common uses which facilitate lapses in both memory and documentation. Generated with 3D scanning technologies such as LIDAR/Photogrammetry, 3D modeling, and 360° recordings, these transposed landscapes question the supposed dichotomy between the real and the virtual.

What all these talented artists have in common is the employment of digital technology to push art in bold new directions, engaging audiences in multi-dimensional experiences of form, texture, color, and space.

Beautiful Interfaces: The privacy paradox at REVERSE
Beautiful Interfaces: The privacy paradox is a new media art exhibition curated by Helena Acosta and Miyö Van Stenis, accessible via a wireless network from hacked wifi routers, which are not connected to the Internet. Each router has a private network which the visitor must connect to on their own devices, cell phones or ipads, in order to view the exhibition. The show explores the concept of privacy versus self­-exposure, through a platform that allows distribution and creates content in a more independent and anonymous way. In the era of algorithm prediction, all our online actions have a digital trace, used by companies and governments to predict our behaviors. The internet's purpose in the media is to collect and quantify each action for surveillance. The exhibition wants to propose answers about dichotomous situations between private and public. The exhibition is a decentralized network to show and distribute new media art, a virtual island on the web composed for a platform of 5 private networks. Daily ordinary online social practices, could look like harmless actions through a naive eye, but contain the potential for unexpected consequences, when they are traced and connected by algorithmic surveillance systems. In less than 5 years facial recognition algorithms will be ubiquitous. Recently Facebook added facial recognition technology to their platform to allow themselves to be more deeply integrated into our smartphones. These new developments will allow easy reconstruction of any random encounter we have on the street that has been captured by a camera. Given this insertion into our social communication practices on the Social Web and hence increasing disclosure of personal information online, the 'privacy paradox' suggests that despite Internet users' concerns about privacy, their behaviors do not reflect those concerns.

U-GRUVE is an ongoing, public audio installation, marking its official launch with New York Creative Tech Week 2016.

The Wayfinding Lab
The Wayfinding Project is initiated by John Kuo Wei Tchen and the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, and launches with an exhibition by artist Beatrice Glow with AR/VR features creating a space to promote curiosity, research, and decolonize New York's history.  From March-December 2016, the exhibition doubles as a lab hosting collaborative research to explore the many facets of Indigenous life along the Lenape Trail (present-day Broadway) before and after Henry Hudson's "discovery" in 1609. The lab usestechnologies—time-tested and cutting edge—to reconstruct one block of Broadway with geo-data in augmented/virtual reality to simultaneously overlay the pasts and futures of Mannahatta/Manhattan. The installation will evolve over the course of its nine-month run, incorporating work by Lenape and Pacific scholars, experts, and culture bearers and Algonquian language scholars, digital cartographers, and communities, who will piece together the surviving historical fragments of land dispossession, dislocation, and diasporas. Their combined findings will inform the creation of additional augmented/virtual reality experiences that will contribute to the envisioning and shaping of an Indigenous futurism.

Please see www.apa.nyu.edu to plan your visit.

Artist Beatrice Glow will be at the gallery to share Augmented and Virtual Reality Demonstration Sessions Monday, May 2nd & Friday, May 6th 2-5PM.

Space Between the Skies employs the power of simulation-based technologies to remember rather than forget. The featured artworks explore the possibility of using VR and simulation-based technology as tools for commemoration and archiving, rather than for more common uses which facilitate lapses in both memory and documentation. Generated with 3D scanning technologies such as LIDAR/Photogrammetry, 3D modeling, and 360° recordings, these transposed landscapes question the supposed dichotomy between the real and the virtual.

Prerogatives of Power: The Good, The Bad and The Perturbed
The Prerogatives of Power: The Good, The Bad and The Perturbed is a multi-screen installation that displays full motion digital video portraits of political leaders from around the world (Obama, Putin, Trump, Cameron, Xi Jinping, Assad, Merkel, Hassan Rouhani, Hollande, Kim Jung Un etc.). An essential part of the total experience is the manipulated audio and video signal in real time. A camera based motion tracking system allows the movement of the gallery visitor to ‘preturb’ the digital video signal, scrambling the video and audio signal to create colorized effects and percussive distortions of the spoken word. For example, in an interview, the embattled president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad is quoted saying: “We do not use barrel bombs.” The motion tracking will trigger the breakup of Assad’s digital video image and the repetition of key words (e.g. b-b-b-barrel, b-b-b-bombs etc.). Wall mounted LCD displays have the visual impact as a gallery filled with large-scale paintings. In this instance the “painting” is full motion digital colorized video pixels. This dramatic format functions as a critique of the use and abuse of power. This multi-screen installation is an homage to Antonio Muntadas’ 1987 installation The Board Room. The viewer’s motion perturbs the audio and digital video signal disrupting and interrupting the speech transforming messaging and political propaganda into visual and auditory artifacts with a separate aesthetic.

The Wayfinding Lab
The Wayfinding Project is initiated by John Kuo Wei Tchen and the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, and launches with an exhibition by artist Beatrice Glow with AR/VR features creating a space to promote curiosity, research, and decolonize New York's history.  From March-December 2016, the exhibition doubles as a lab hosting collaborative research to explore the many facets of Indigenous life along the Lenape Trail (present-day Broadway) before and after Henry Hudson's "discovery" in 1609. The lab usestechnologies—time-tested and cutting edge—to reconstruct one block of Broadway with geo-data in augmented/virtual reality to simultaneously overlay the pasts and futures of Mannahatta/Manhattan. The installation will evolve over the course of its nine-month run, incorporating work by Lenape and Pacific scholars, experts, and culture bearers and Algonquian language scholars, digital cartographers, and communities, who will piece together the surviving historical fragments of land dispossession, dislocation, and diasporas. Their combined findings will inform the creation of additional augmented/virtual reality experiences that will contribute to the envisioning and shaping of an Indigenous futurism.

Please see www.apa.nyu.edu to plan your visit.

Prerogatives of Power: The Good, The Bad and The Perturbed
The Prerogatives of Power: The Good, The Bad and The Perturbed is a multi-screen installation that displays full motion digital video portraits of political leaders from around the world (Obama, Putin, Trump, Cameron, Xi Jinping, Assad, Merkel, Hassan Rouhani, Hollande, Kim Jung Un etc.). An essential part of the total experience is the manipulated audio and video signal in real time. A camera based motion tracking system allows the movement of the gallery visitor to ‘preturb’ the digital video signal, scrambling the video and audio signal to create colorized effects and percussive distortions of the spoken word. For example, in an interview, the embattled president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad is quoted saying: “We do not use barrel bombs.” The motion tracking will trigger the breakup of Assad’s digital video image and the repetition of key words (e.g. b-b-b-barrel, b-b-b-bombs etc.). Wall mounted LCD displays have the visual impact as a gallery filled with large-scale paintings. In this instance the “painting” is full motion digital colorized video pixels. This dramatic format functions as a critique of the use and abuse of power. This multi-screen installation is an homage to Antonio Muntadas’ 1987 installation The Board Room. The viewer’s motion perturbs the audio and digital video signal disrupting and interrupting the speech transforming messaging and political propaganda into visual and auditory artifacts with a separate aesthetic.

The exhibition “Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies” will feature the work of six pioneering artists with distinct individual styles. They have been recognized by museums, galleries and institutions around the world. The range of the media employed by these artists reaches from the earliest fine art techniques to the latest digital technologies: from clay to environmental interactive video and Immersive 3D, from pen and ink notebook drawings to wall sized, hand colored printouts and paintings, from digital photography to tapestry portraits incorporating neurological data. What all these talented artists have in common is the employment of digital technology to push art in bold new directions, engaging audiences in multi-dimensional experiences of form, texture, color, and space.

Beautiful Interfaces: The privacy paradox at REVERSE
Beautiful Interfaces: The privacy paradox is a new media art exhibition curated by Helena Acosta and Miyö Van Stenis, accessible via a wireless network from hacked wifi routers, which are not connected to the Internet. Each router has a private network which the visitor must connect to on their own devices, cell phones or ipads, in order to view the exhibition. The show explores the concept of privacy versus self­-exposure, through a platform that allows distribution and creates content in a more independent and anonymous way. In the era of algorithm prediction, all our online actions have a digital trace, used by companies and governments to predict our behaviors. The internet's purpose in the media is to collect and quantify each action for surveillance. The exhibition wants to propose answers about dichotomous situations between private and public. The exhibition is a decentralized network to show and distribute new media art, a virtual island on the web composed for a platform of 5 private networks. Daily ordinary online social practices, could look like harmless actions through a naive eye, but contain the potential for unexpected consequences, when they are traced and connected by algorithmic surveillance systems. In less than 5 years facial recognition algorithms will be ubiquitous. Recently Facebook added facial recognition technology to their platform to allow themselves to be more deeply integrated into our smartphones. These new developments will allow easy reconstruction of any random encounter we have on the street that has been captured by a camera. Given this insertion into our social communication practices on the Social Web and hence increasing disclosure of personal information online, the 'privacy paradox' suggests that despite Internet users' concerns about privacy, their behaviors do not reflect those concerns.

Interdimensional Beings

Time is the only resource we can't replenish, and it's the one aspect of all of our lives that we're still struggling to understand. Scientists and philosophers have hypothesized on the machinations of time for millennia, but science has yet to unlock the mysteries of time's ebb and flow.

 

Nonetheless, we are all time-travelers. Whether we’re journeying to distant memories or looking ahead to future possibilities, we’re constantly traversing time and often struggling to reconcile our pasts and futures with the present.

 

Each of the six artists taking part in Interdimensional Beings look at time from different angles. Whether it's the passage of time on a cosmic scale, the potential ramifications of time travel, or merely how we reminisce about the past, Interdimensional Beings seeks to elucidate the myriad ways inn which time impacts us all on a daily basis, and how our evolving relationships with time still have the possibility to amaze and inspire.

Social Media and the Creative Mind

The Internet has gifted us with the ability to connect to our world. We can find friends in strangers we may have never met otherwise, and see and experience things through the eyes of other people broadcasting their lives through social media - finding inspiration through exposure and awareness to things that would have been inaccessible. In a fast-paced world, social media can help us consolidate our connection with friends and family with the latest buzz news in a single, clean little feed - with the ability to filter out what displeases us and open our world to information we want to receive. We’ve learned to deliver and consume information broadcasted in sound bites, paired with stunning images and provoking headlines vying for attention to buy, support, read, react, re-share, ‘like’ and offer opposition or validation.


So, what does this do to our creative lives? Can we find our own voice in a sea of influences, or are we being molded by the tastes and preferences of others we follow, watch, and from which receive feedback? Do we truly feel free to express ourselves, or do we create and post to cater to our connections for validation? Are we more inclined to seek immediate gratification found in short snippets of information instead of reading a literary masterpiece? Can we appreciate art profoundly or do we just want to take a picture of something to post to instagram and prove we do interesting things?


Join us in this discussion as we explore how social media affects our creative selves.

Beautiful Interfaces: The privacy paradox at REVERSE
Beautiful Interfaces: The privacy paradox is a new media art exhibition curated by Helena Acosta and Miyö Van Stenis, accessible via a wireless network from hacked wifi routers, which are not connected to the Internet. Each router has a private network which the visitor must connect to on their own devices, cell phones or ipads, in order to view the exhibition. The show explores the concept of privacy versus self­-exposure, through a platform that allows distribution and creates content in a more independent and anonymous way. In the era of algorithm prediction, all our online actions have a digital trace, used by companies and governments to predict our behaviors. The internet's purpose in the media is to collect and quantify each action for surveillance. The exhibition wants to propose answers about dichotomous situations between private and public. The exhibition is a decentralized network to show and distribute new media art, a virtual island on the web composed for a platform of 5 private networks. Daily ordinary online social practices, could look like harmless actions through a naive eye, but contain the potential for unexpected consequences, when they are traced and connected by algorithmic surveillance systems. In less than 5 years facial recognition algorithms will be ubiquitous. Recently Facebook added facial recognition technology to their platform to allow themselves to be more deeply integrated into our smartphones. These new developments will allow easy reconstruction of any random encounter we have on the street that has been captured by a camera. Given this insertion into our social communication practices on the Social Web and hence increasing disclosure of personal information online, the 'privacy paradox' suggests that despite Internet users' concerns about privacy, their behaviors do not reflect those concerns.

Prototyping Interaction with Spacebrew
This workshop will introduce Spacebrew from a technical perspective and explore ways to prototype interactive installations with Spacebrew. On the technical side, we will cover: a high-level introduction to Spacebrew; an overview of how to connect to Spacebrew with Processing and Javascript; and demonstrations on how to use Spacebrew to connect all of the above together.

Participants will be guided through a set of live-coding scenarios, showing how to setup Spacebrew, and how to create apps from scratch. Time pending, we will be prepared to demonstrate a range of examples and projects, including connecting Spacebrew to an off-the-shelf outlet, to an Arduino-powered LED bar, and to mobile devices.

Generated with 3D scanning technologies such as LIDAR/Photogrammetry, 3D modeling, and 360° recordings, these transposed landscapes question the supposed dichotomy between the real and the virtual.

Prerogatives of Power: The Good, The Bad and The Perturbed
The Prerogatives of Power: The Good, The Bad and The Perturbed is a multi-screen installation that displays full motion digital video portraits of political leaders from around the world (Obama, Putin, Trump, Cameron, Xi Jinping, Assad, Merkel, Hassan Rouhani, Hollande, Kim Jung Un etc.). An essential part of the total experience is the manipulated audio and video signal in real time. A camera based motion tracking system allows the movement of the gallery visitor to ‘preturb’ the digital video signal, scrambling the video and audio signal to create colorized effects and percussive distortions of the spoken word. For example, in an interview, the embattled president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad is quoted saying: “We do not use barrel bombs.” The motion tracking will trigger the breakup of Assad’s digital video image and the repetition of key words (e.g. b-b-b-barrel, b-b-b-bombs etc.). Wall mounted LCD displays have the visual impact as a gallery filled with large-scale paintings. In this instance the “painting” is full motion digital colorized video pixels. This dramatic format functions as a critique of the use and abuse of power. This multi-screen installation is an homage to Antonio Muntadas’ 1987 installation The Board Room. The viewer’s motion perturbs the audio and digital video signal disrupting and interrupting the speech transforming messaging and political propaganda into visual and auditory artifacts with a separate aesthetic.

Exhibition: The Dolls House

TRANSFER IS PLEASED TO PRESENT ‘THE DOLLS HOUSE’ THE GALLERY’S FIRST SOLO EXHIBITION WITH CLAUDIA HART INCLUDING A SPECIAL SOUND TRACK BY KURT HENTSCHAGER.

GALLERY HOURS: Saturdays 12-6PM and by Appointment 

‘The Dolls House’ is a new series of video, drawing and sculptural work from Claudia Hart, inspired by her media ballet ‘The Dolls’ which is based in the philosophical idea of the “eternal return” – the notion that history endlessly renews itself through a process of decadence, decay and rebirth. To embody this, Hart has molded mathematical cycles into visual form, creating rhythmic, animations of pulsing patterns which are physically mesmerizing and intentionally hypnotic as a result of their algorithmic qualities.

Hart imagines an abstract computer warehouse filled with old dollhouses culled from the junk heap of some future history. She scoured Google’s 3D Warehouse – available as shareware for all users of Internet – for architectural monuments from a decadent history, past empires from all over the world. These include The Arch of Labna (a Mesoamerican archaeological site and ceremonial center of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization), the Roman Forum-of-Ceasar, Marie-Antoinette’s Le Petit Trianon (the small chateau on the grounds of Louis XIV’s Versaille, where she dressed as a milkmaid with her ladies-in-waiting), a Queen Anne House from Victorian England; the Dragomir Mansion from Bucharest; and the Paulwall House – still standing in our own ruined Detroit.

Like her doll houses, Hart’s 3D modelled tutus are also drawn from the scion of a fallen empire: the gowns of Margaret Theresa of Spain, among the last of the Spanish Habsburgs. This child princess was the central figure in the famous painting Las Meninas, a canonical masterpiece by the great 17th-century court painter, Diego Velazquez, and the subject of many of his paintings. Hart’s Velazquez princess dresses are modeled by computer and produced as mixed-media works on paper with projection mapping, and 3D printed sculpture for the exhibition.

Hart’s brightly colored, algorithmic flickering patterns are the ultimate component of her contemplation on the passage of time and the death of kings. The animated patterns are based on the symbols of further collapsed empires – from the Faberge eggs of The House of Romanov to the banners and heraldry of Gengis Kahn and the Mongol Empire. Distributed among these are the current logos and graphical icons of our own multinationals corporations. The end result is in some ways like a stroll through Times Square or a glitzy night in Vegas. But it is also paradoxically and strangely quite trance inducing and meditative, a vehicle for some kind of enlightenment.

A full inventory of work from ’The Dolls House’ is available from the gallery. Please inquire with the director@transfergallery.com to request information.

ABOUT THE ARTIST :::
Claudia Hart has been active as an artist, curator and critic since 1988. She creates virtual representations that take the form of 3d imagery integrated into photography, multi-channel animation installations, performances and sculptures using advanced production techniques such as Rapid Prototyping, CNC routing and augmented-reality custom apps. Her works deal with issues of representation, the role of the computer in shifting contemporary values about identity and the real, and specifically questions ideas about what might be considered “natural.” Her project is to feminize the masculinist culture of technology by interjecting emotional subjectivity into what is typically the overly-determined Cartesian world of digital design.

Kurt Hentschalger, who created the music for “The Dolls,” is an audio visual artist whose work has been shown internationally since the the late 80s. For further information: www.kurthentschlager.com

Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies Exhibition

Current works by Margie Hughto, Darcy Gerbarg, Barbara Nessim, Lia Cook, Vibeke Sorensen and Linda Law

The exhibition “Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies” will feature the work of six pioneering artists with distinct individual styles. They have been recognized by museums, galleries and institutions around the world. The range of the media employed by these artists reaches from the earliest fine art techniques to the latest digital technologies: from clay to environmental interactive video and Immersive 3D, from pen and ink notebook drawings to wall sized, hand colored printouts and paintings, from digital photography to tapestry portraits incorporating neurological data. What all these talented artists have in common is the employment of digital technology to push art in bold new directions, engaging audiences in multi-dimensional experiences of form, texture, color, and space.

W.U.R.M.: Escape from a Dying Star
W.U.R.M.: Escape from a Dying Star is a two-player immersive space survival game. The game is  centered around a physical structure, the spaceship (WURM) itself. The ship is built of foam core and 3d printed materials, with a fully operational control panel and wearable electronic vest. The panel and vest house several controls, which the pilot must adjust during flight in order to survive. The pilot is unable to determine where the controls should be set, without the guidance of the second player stationed at Base Command. A generative audio-visual system built in Processing and Pure Data reacts to the manipulations of the controls by the pilot, which in turn alter the course of the spaceship, creating an increasingly complex feedback loop. Random generation of  the initial environmental constructs ensure a 
unique experience for each player. The pilot is able to manipulate several controls, including Hyperdrive, Oxygen, Modulation, and Particle Splitters. Each control has a unique effect on the audio-visual environment and gameplay. If the Hyperdrive is set too low for too long, for example, the pilot's WURM will be damaged. If  too much damage is accumulated during play, the WURM explodes and the two players are met with defeat. With enough trust and communication, however, Base Command will safely guide the pilot to the other side of the wormhole.

Midnight Moment

Midnight Moment is the largest coordinated effort in history by the sign operators in Times Square to display synchronized, cutting-edge creative content on electronic billboards and newspaper kiosks throughout Times Square every night. The program premiered in May 2012 and is organized and supported by the Times Square Advertising Coalition in partnership with Times Square Arts, the public art program of the Times Square Alliance, with additional partners of participating sign holders and artists.

 

Each night, Times Square becomes a digital art gallery through dazzling visuals on select billboards and newsstands. Every show begins at 11:57 p.m. with a "countdown" that signals the start of the three minute nightly presentation.  Past artists featured in the program include Richard Garet; Andy Warhol; Peggy Ahwesh;  Marco Brambilla; Rafaël Rozendaal; Sebastian Errazuriz; Charles Atlas and Antony; Noah Hutton;  Ryoji Ikeda; Daniel Canogar; Alfredo Jaar; Isaac Julien; Robert Wilson; Tracey Emin; Seoungho Cho; Vicki DaSilva, Surabhi Saraf, and Elly Cho; Erika Janunger; Takeshi Murata; Bel Borba with Burt Sun and André Costantini; Zach Nader; Brian Gonzalez (aka Taxiplasm); Björk; JR; Ryan McGinley; Jack Goldstein; Nature Theater of Oklahoma; Ezra Wube;Laleh Khorramian; Brian Dailey; Leslie Thornton; and Yoko Ono.

U-GRUVE is an ongoing, public audio installation, marking its official launch with New York Creative Tech Week 2016.

U-GRUVE blurs the line between listening and performing, and turns your normal, passive, listening experience into one that is enriching, memorable, and unique to your interactions, ultimately strengthening your connection to the places you love.

Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies Exhibition

Current works by Margie Hughto, Darcy Gerbarg, Barbara Nessim, Lia Cook, Vibeke Sorensen and Linda Law

The exhibition “Experiments in Art and Digital Technologies” will feature the work of six pioneering artists with distinct individual styles. They have been recognized by museums, galleries and institutions around the world. The range of the media employed by these artists reaches from the earliest fine art techniques to the latest digital technologies: from clay to environmental interactive video and Immersive 3D, from pen and ink notebook drawings to wall sized, hand colored printouts and paintings, from digital photography to tapestry portraits incorporating neurological data. What all these talented artists have in common is the employment of digital technology to push art in bold new directions, engaging audiences in multi-dimensional experiences of form, texture, color, and space.

Prerogatives of Power: The Good, The Bad and The Perturbed
The Prerogatives of Power: The Good, The Bad and The Perturbed is a multi-screen installation that displays full motion digital video portraits of political leaders from around the world (Obama, Putin, Trump, Cameron, Xi Jinping, Assad, Merkel, Hassan Rouhani, Hollande, Kim Jung Un etc.). An essential part of the total experience is the manipulated audio and video signal in real time. A camera based motion tracking system allows the movement of the gallery visitor to ‘preturb’ the digital video signal, scrambling the video and audio signal to create colorized effects and percussive distortions of the spoken word. For example, in an interview, the embattled president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad is quoted saying: “We do not use barrel bombs.” The motion tracking will trigger the breakup of Assad’s digital video image and the repetition of key words (e.g. b-b-b-barrel, b-b-b-bombs etc.). Wall mounted LCD displays have the visual impact as a gallery filled with large-scale paintings. In this instance the “painting” is full motion digital colorized video pixels. This dramatic format functions as a critique of the use and abuse of power. This multi-screen installation is an homage to Antonio Muntadas’ 1987 installation The Board Room. The viewer’s motion perturbs the audio and digital video signal disrupting and interrupting the speech transforming messaging and political propaganda into visual and auditory artifacts with a separate aesthetic.
