Videographe Installation

As part of the show in Montreal I have installed a new slide piece on the outside of the gallery. The piece acts as a sort of visual toolbar for the building. This is the third large scale window installation I have done using icons from the computer desktop. I think of them as an update on the stained glass window. Here is a quick picture of the installation from the outside of the building. The show opens tomorrow at 5pm.

Off to Montreal

I am off to Montreal tomorrow to set up a show at Espace Videographe. The show will feature “88 Constellations for Wittgenstein” and four older internet pieces. I am also doing a new slide piece for the windows of the building. The opening is on Thursday, May 7 and I am very pleased that my old friend Nelson Henricks will be hosting a discussion about the work.

There is a publication for this show with an excellent essay by Vancouver artist/writer Marina Roy called “Invisible Hands” that talks about “88 Constellations” and “A is for Apple”. I have been working with Marina and her husband Graham Meisner for the last few years on a new project based on a book that Marina wrote called “Sign after the X”.

I have now made professional looking copies of the CD-ROM that I will be sending out and distributing. Here is the cover:

‘88 Constellations’ has been included an internet project being put together by Blackflash Magazine that can be seen here.

Slow Reveal

‘88 Constellations for Wittgenstein” and “A is for Apple” have been included in a show at The Art Gallery of the University of Maryland in Baltimore. The show is called “A Slow Reveal… In the rapidly changing world of Internet art in the twenty-first century”. There is an essay by the curator, Jennie Fleming. The show includes work by Kate Pullington, Chris Joseph, Andy Campbell, Judi Alston, J.R. Carpenter, Annette Weintraub, Roderick Coover, Mark Amerika, & Jody Zellen.

Baltimore is a fantastic place. I had a large show there at MICA Gallery in Baltimore in 2005 and I really liked the vibe of the place. It seems that there is a really strong underground culture going on.

‘Meanwhile’ wins an award at CINEMA TOUS ECRANS, Geneva

‘Meanwhile’, an interactive, non-linear film I made in 2006 with my collaborators in the group ‘ Shelley Simmons, Chris Mendis and Jeff Howard has won an award at the CINEMA TOUS ECRANS, 14e Festival International du Film in Geneva Switzerland. Our piece won the Reflet d’Or of the best interactive multimedia fiction. The jury said that “The price is awarded to a piece of work that put the multimedia feature in the center of its conception and thus allows to develop a new narrative experience. This experience wanders from the inflexibility of  cinematic narration and of the interactive scenarii of video games.”

We are pretty chuffed and are trying to figure out how we can all get to Switzerland to use the €4000 in production services that comes with the prize.

‘88 Constellations’ will be included in the installations section of the 12th International Video Festival VIDEOMEDEJA in Novi Sad, Serbia from December 12 – 14th 2008. This is another festival that screened ‘A is for Apple’ in the past and it looks like a really good program with lots of experimental video.
