"tech know - Logic"
Disney Nasa Borg, Lillian Ball, Jody Elff and iligili.
The two-night event will investigate the relationship
between traditional uses of visual media and their translation through
computer generated platforms. Painting, sculpture, video, installation,
and performance will be explored.
The on-line gallery presents web interactive works and computer generated
moving images through such programs as Flash, QuickTime, Shockwave. The
artist's own code reveals the creation of an ultimate sculptural installation
that uses infinite space. The interaction between traditional media and
the internet is pushing the boundaries of the traditional gallery and/or
site specific installation. The Internet has created "the WEB project"
to categorize such events.
"tech know - Logic" introduces the collaboration of traditional media
and the computer. Visual media can be enhanced by this new medium. The
viewer is able to participate, and to focus on the artist as the medium.
Emphasis is placed upon the tools the artist uses to most clearly communicate
his/her own journey. "Tech Know- Logic" has transformed the tactile object
of art into a journey that allows for participation and continual dialogue.
NASA Borg will portray this on both nights by demonstrating complete
web interactivity . On the second night he will create a three dimensional
web page including a male and a female butoh dancer that will act as the
cursor for physical interaction for a 3-dimensional web page. Interactivity
will also be illustrated by Gearoid Dolan of Screamachine. His work combines
low-tech collage, projected floating imagery, and high-tech interactive
utilizes sculptural installation. Physical interaction is required to
experience his trans funk erotica. Images flash so fast before the viewers
eyes that they come forth as a memory.
Ball's virtual life of sculpture is translated through computer animation.
Elff's digitized sound sculpture is orchestrated by the action
of the viewer.
