Light and the Unseen
The subject of light has been of interest to artists, writers, scientists and more throughout the centuries and yet it seems that the fascination with light could be endless. This exhibition focuses on the work of seven artists that do not necessarily consider light as the main or only subject of their work. They use light to explore ideas about vision, physics, the cosmos, belief and the human relationship to light both physically and psychologically. These ideas are more broadly considered here as the unseen. The idea of the unseen can not be precisely defined, just as the nature of light is not fully understood. Instead we explore the unseen in both dark and light space through the film, painting, photography and installation of the seven artists. In addition to the works in the gallery, the subject of light will be explored through a collaborative publication. Through this book the thoughts of the artists are joined with writings from poet Catherine Theis, astrophysicist Rodolfo Montez and curator Julie Rudder. Artists include: Pam Bannos, Dana Carter, Joe Grimm, Roxane Hopper, Michael Robinson, Daniel Sauter, and Olivia Schreiner Light and the Unseen is guest curated by Julie Rudder.

Workshop at AUDO 2010: Ping: Collaborative real-time audio synthesis in ad-hoc peer-to-peer multi-hop networks
AUDO is an unconventional festival that invites practitioners and theoreticians from a broad range of sound-related disciplines to discuss new strategies for the creation, production, distribution and cultural analysis of sound and music-based work. Activities in AUDO 2010 will include: sound walks, concerts, creation of interactive sound networks, exhibits that translate hand drawn images or body movements into sounds and many other exciting examples of contemporary sound art. AUDO 2010 is comprised of 2 linked components: a three-day series of discussion forums, performances and workshops (festival component) leading to an exhibition of resulting outcomes in an exhibition component immediately following the festival. The goal of this exhibition is to showcase results of creative interactions between festival participants during the first three days of the event: videos, sounds, interactive systems, objects, texts that have been created collaboratively highlighting the word DO in the festival's title. Organized by: Esteban Garcia (PhD student, Computer Graphics Technology, Purdue); Shannon McMullen (Assistant Professor, Electronic and Time-Based Art, Purdue); Juan Obando (Assistant Professor, Department of Art, Elon University, NC); Fabian Winkler (Assistant Professor, Electronic and Time-Based Art, Purdue)

"In the Line of Sight" at the SIGGRAPH 2010 Art Gallery in Los Angeles from July 25 - 29, 2010
A collaboration between Sauter and Fabian Winkler, In the Line of Sight is a light installation that uses 100 computer-controlled tactical flashlights to project low-resolution video footage of moving persons into the exhibition space. Each flashlight projects a light spot - similar to a pixel - on the wall. All flashlights combined create 10 x 10 pixel representations of the source footage. The SIGGRAPH 2010 juried art gallery showcases work by artists who physically engage technology in their creative process. Beyond the sense of sight, TouchPoint brings together creative works that investigate, celebrate, and critique the polysensory nature of human experience in a digitally enhanced environment. It investigates the permeable membrane of the digital interface, where we use an array of tools to materialize and visualize future artifacts of creative expression. The work integrates human haptic connections in computer-based artwork, involving the "viewer" and/or the artist through a unique physical interface. Now in its 37th year, the SIGGRAPH conference is the premier international event on computer graphics and interactive techniques. SIGGRAPH 2010 is expected to draw an estimated 25,000 professionals from five continents to Los Angeles, California. The SIGGRAPH conference and exhibition is a five-day interdisciplinary educational experience including a three-day commercial exhibition that attracts hundreds of exhibitors from around the world. SIGGRAPH is widely recognized as the most prestigious forum for the publication of computer graphics research. In addition to SIGGRAPH

The Emergence Project at Imaging the Future, Gallery Project, Ann Arbor, MI
May 5 - June 13 Opening Reception: Friday, May 7, from 6-9pm. Gallery Project presents Imaging the Future, a multimedia exhibit in 26 artists, architects, engineers, scientists, and fashion designers attempt to visualize what life in the future will be like. The exhibit, which opens on Wednesday, May 5 and runs through Sunday, June 13, is the first of Gallery Projects new cycle of exhibits. The opening reception is Friday, May 7 from 6-9. Questions about the future abound: What is going to happen to my town, to Michigan, to my country, my world? Whats ahead for the environment, global warming, the energy crisis, and green technology? Whats next for Wall Street, Main Street, the housing market, the world financial system, my job? How will technological advances impact communication, transportation, housing, food, clothing, weaponry, play, and identity? Will we have colonies in space or on distant planets and moons, and will we be encouraged to travel there? What will become of our species and other species as we evolve? Depending on ones vision and vantage point, such questions may activate anxiety, fear, cynicism and dark visions. Or they may mobilize a sense of hope and promise, idealism and utopian imaginings. This exhibition challenges each artist to pose a question about the future and to image a response. The exhibit is curated by Gloria Pritschet and Rocco DePietro.

Light Attack book launched:
Light Attack: Media Art and the Moving-Moving Image as Intervention in Public Spaces (VDM Publishing House, ISBN-10: 3639214587, Dec. 11, 2009) Light Attack is a media art performance, as well as a social experiment, performed in public urban spaces. While driving through the city, an animated virtual character is projected from a moving vehicle onto the cityscape exploring places "to go" and "not to go" in urban centers such as Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Seoul, and Mexico City. The book provides the conceptual framework for Light Attack. It follows the history of electric light as medium and symbol for cultural grandeur. It discusses media architecture and projection-based media art in relation to a contemporary site-specific public art practice. The book should be especially useful to students and professionals in the field of Media Arts, Art History, and Communications. [ project page ]

In the Line of Sight at Ars Electronica Festival 2009
Since 1987, the Prix Ars Electronica has served as an interdisciplinary platform for everyone who uses the computer as a universal medium for implementing and designing their creative projects at the interface of art, technology and society. The event calls for entries in eight categories, including a youth competition. And since internationally renowned artists from over 70 countries also participate in the Prix Ars Electronica, it has established itself as a barometer for trends in contemporary media art. With over 40.617 entries since 1987 and prize money in 2009 totalling 122,500 euros, the competition offers the largest cash purse for cyberarts worldwide. Each year, six Golden Nicas, twelve Awards of Distinction and approximately 70 Honorary Mentions as well as a grant for the category [the next idea] and the Media.Art.Research Award are presented to participants. Since media art is such a highly dynamic field, criteria for the categories have to be constantly modified and adjusted to societal and technological developments, and so updated to meet new demands.

Burnham Pavilion, open to the public on June 19, 2009
The sculptural UNStudio pavilion is highly accessible and functions as an urban activator. Framed by Lake Michigan on one side and Michigan Avenue on the other, it relates to diverse city-contexts and scales. The edges of the roof are parallel, but toward the center there is more complexity in the form.

At night, UNStudios pavilion becomes a responsive architecture with LED lights that change color and pattern. These lights will be in constant flux as the number of visitors to the pavilion changes. Programmatically the pavilion invites people to gather, walk around and through the spaceto explore and observe. Its sculptural form and reactive lights will spark curiosity and wonder in its visitors.
The Burnham Pavilions will be open and free to the public in Millennium Park from June 19 through October 31, 2009.

The Emergence Project opens at Hyde Park Art Center
Artists Daniel Sauter and Mark Hereld work together to create a digital artwork based on the ideas produced from the 2008 Chicago Humanities Festival. The contents of the days presentations, performances and panel discussions will be captured, analyzed and processed into a dynamic visualization that evolves from minute to minute to express big ideas. This innovative, real-time art installation will explore how complex systems and patterns arise out of simple interactions. The Emergence Project is an art installation that will explore how complex patterns arise out of a multiplicity of simple interactions, a phenomenon known as emergence. Focusing on the actual discourse emanating from the Chicago Humanities Festivals October 11 day of programs hosted in several venues in the Hyde Park area, the contents of the presentations, performances, and panel discussions are captured, analyzed, and processed into a multidimensional image that evolves from minute to minute. The piece will use simple morphological rules to excavate emerging word clusters and expressed big ideas, representing them on the Hyde Park Art Centers digital faade.

We interrupt your regularly scheduled program... exhibited at the 3rd Beijing International New Media Arts Exhibition and Symposium 2006, July 21 - July 30, 2006, China Millennium Museum in Beijing
The new millennium has witnessed the growing vitality throughout the world of new media art, an art mediated via digital means, often with the internet as its platform. This emerging art, originating from an increasingly technologically dependent society, not only challenges traditional creative media, and ways of thinking, but also posits to artists and cultural workers new questions concerning all realms of contemporary life. Under the auspices of Millennium Dialogue, the First and Second Beijing International New Media Arts Exhibition and Symposium successfully mounted two ground-breaking exhibitions and symposia in 2004 and 2005 respectively at the China Millennium Museum in Beijing. Enlisting a number of key players in the realm of media art throughout the world as partners, "Millennium Dialogue" aims at establishing a global, constructive platform for dialogue and exchange with the most current discourse in new media arts production and theorization to advance and promote digital arts and education in China. At the helm of the project are three prominent institutions, with Tsinghua University as host, one of the most acclaimed research and educational institutions of China, joined by ZKM | Center for Art and Media of Karlsruhe, Germany, the World

The role of new technologies in the creative contemporary journey seems to defer more often from a merely instrumental function and instead seems to find itself more frequently in a research in which they assume various shapes and forms, becoming subject, object and the space of the process itself. An entity tightly correlated in a system of indissoluble relationships with the creative idea itself becoming a project and therefore a construction. [Excerpt from a curatorial text by Paolo Rigamonti, Gianluca Milesi, Marco Mancuso]

Light Attack performed at BEYOND MEDIA, international festival of architecture and media, Florence, Italy
The eighth edition of BEYOND MEDIA, scheduled to take place in Florence December 1st-11th, 2005, will focus the national and international attention on very up-to-date topics, that will be the occasion for developing a series of significant occasions for a public exchange of ideas. The venues of the event are Brunelleschi\'s Ospedale degli Innocenti and the Stazione Leopolda. The festival will once again promote a dialogue between the world of architectural production and the larger universe of communication. It will do so with a rich program of meetings, projections and exhibitions which will present the most significant contemporary researches in a way that will be interesting both for specialists and the public at large. The theme for the 8th edition of BEYOND MEDIA is "SCRIPT". How can architecture today talk about itself? Which narrative forms are linked to the idea of the project, of its external expressions, of its publicity? How does design structure its languages and how does it express the culture of our times by means of a contemporary way of writing? Which paths do emerging creatives follow in order to approach the new modes of expression which are made possible by the digital tools and by the new media? "SCRIPT" will offer an opportunity for thinking about a wide range of topics that are at the center of the design culture today.

Light Attack awarded with the NABI special honourable mention, UNESCO Digital Arts Award 2005 - City and Creative Media
Creating the conditions of people-centred sustainable urban development within an increasingly urbanized world is more and more accentuated across the globe. Cities are subject to innumerable pressures that affect their inhabitants, but can also bring about change, social progress, and cultural diversity through imaginative and creative initiatives. Cities could truly be centres for expression of cultural diversity and places of vitality where creators working in different fields of arts act as catalysts in mobilizing impetus from unique realities and experiences within urban environment. Facing the growing presence of information and communication technology within every aspect of our lives, digital technology and communication media have brought new perceptions and socio-cultural interactions in the urban environment, transforming the way in which we experience our cities. The concepts of space, time, and social relationship from every sphere of the urban life experience are put in flux via communication technologies such as internet, mobile phones, wireless network, and locative media. Therefore, at the intersections of art, design, technology, and socio-cultural conditions, young artists around the world are invited to participate in the UNESCO Digital Arts Award 2005 to reflect on how urban spaces and city environments could be transformed into creative outlets cultivating artistic innovation and new forms of expression.

Light Attack at dorkbot Southern California
Light Attack is a media artwork, as well as a social experiment, which takes place the urban sphere of Los Angeles. While driving through the city, an animated virtual character is projected onto the cityscape of L.A. exploring three places "to go" and three places "not to go", according to the popular Lonely Planet travel guide. Light Attack elaborates the concept of the "moving moving" image in the stereotyped neighborhoods of Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Downtown, Watts, and Compton. The virtual character, projected from a moving vehicle onto the city facades, reacts to the architectural context, and interacts with passers-by while "walking" through the city. The character's actions are condensed in a gallery installation, reflecting projection as an emergent ubiquitous medium. The piece raises questions about property and privacy. How public is public space? How projection, as a medium, changing the environment in which we live? More information at

we interrupt your regularly scheduled program... at Ars Electronica 2004, OK Center, Linz, Austria.
Each single frame of a TV program is compressed down to the size of one pixel, resulting in flowing patterns of color that get their structure from the content of the images and the rhythm of the editing of the TV program. News produces horizontal colorations; cuts are projected as vertical lines, zooms as curves; commercials turn into vibrating color patterns. By changing channels, the user can experiment with the relationship between program and sound and the corresponding projection. Prix Ars Electronica 2004, Honorary Mention Interactive Art
