The Motion Still Life series extends the artistic tradition of the picturesque and spatial object arrangement into the domain of the Internet. A live Web camera frames a physical still life scene with vase, flowers and still life objects. Aesthetic web controls allow the internet viewer from anywhere to adjust the composition telematically. The Internet user is the surrogate artist.

The Digital Art Weeks PROGRAM (DAW06) is concerned with the application of digital
technology in the arts. Consisting again this year of symposium, workshops and
performances, the program offers insight into current research and innovations in art and
technology as well as illustrating resulting synergies in a series of performances, making
artists aware of impulses in technology and scientists aware of the possibilities of the
application of technology in the arts.

Synthesis and Distribution: Experiments in Collaboration

Pace Digital Gallery is pleased to present new media work from:

Synthesis and Distribution: Experiments in Collaboration
Link: http://csis.pace.edu/digitalgallery/

Curated by:
Will Pappenheimer, Artist, Pace University
Ron Janowich, Artist, New York, University of Florida
Merijn van der Heijden, Artist, Ohio State University,

Notions of synthesis and distribution in collaboration represent a coming together of separate identities into a new and highly invigorating investigation. As a pre-requisite, participants must question or set aside familiar rules and tools to open up a particular problem in art and visual language from different perspectives. The process is likely to encompass dialogue, brainstorming, overlay, distribution, collective practices, geography, hybridization, network activities, and new forms of cooperative invention. This way of working is not necessarily shaped by personal language or personal concerns. It can be understood as a third language. It is a way of working that is based on mutual respect, risk-taking and expansive inquiry that allows a team or group to venture into new and unknown directions.

“Synthesis and Distribution: Experiments in Collaboration” is an concurrent series of exhibitions featuring the unexpected results of artistic and interdisciplinary collaboration. The artists, writers and thinkers were invited based on their willingness to explore and transform each other’s work. They may have already established an existing collaborative body of work or they may be encouraged to uncover this latent interest within the purview of this exhibition.

Artists from over five countries will exhibit work in new media, photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, video, digital printing, and musical performance. Interdisciplinary collaborations will include visual arts, musical performance, criticism, writing, architecture and the social sciences. They will be exhibited simultaneously in all three of Pace University’s Fine Arts Galleries.

aHere For Youa

“Here For You”
Will Pappenheimer
Installation and Network performance

Internet participants are invited to participate in a live network performance project opening Friday September 22nd at 7pm online and at the XINDUSTRIA exhibition at CAFKA 05, Kichener, Ontario. The project is a prototypical internet controlled space which allows virtual participants to adjust room lighting, see into the space, move objects, time clocks, upload messages and sound from your computer play it for the sound system. The guideline is to redirect surveillance, control and distance into channels of giving for physical visitors in the exhibition space. The exhibition continues through September 30.

This is a large ongoing project with dual physical and virtual levels and the challenges of connectivity and mechanics. It will begin simply develop as the exhibition proceeds.

“Here For You” will create a series of IP controlled conventional and fanciful domestic objects to comprise a network livingspace. Exhibition participants will be invited to relax in a living/domestic space constructed in or modified from available exhibition space. Appliances, both practical and artistic, can be controlled by anyone accessing the Internet from anywhere in the world. . The project hopes to create an environment where telepresence meets presence, remote control meets lifestyle, distance becomes proximity, surveillance becomes community and network becomes living room.
