http://www.issueprojectroom.org/2011/08/17/transmission-arts-artists-and-airwaves/

 ABOUT THE BOOK

In this ground-breaking look at a new art genre, Transmission Arts: Artists and Airwaves brings together a genealogy of 150 artists and artworks—and more than 250 images—from 1921 to the present that encompasses performance, video, radio theatre, sound art, media installation, networked art, and acoustic ecology. Here is a fascinating account of the ingenuity and creativity of artists who have made new discoveries in broadcast, public works, performance composition, sound, and text, stretching the boundaries of both transmitter and receiver. At a time when public access struggles with corporate control of the airwaves, artists have combined activism and communications technologies to represent alternative worlds on the electromagnetic spectrum. Click here to order Transmission Arts: Artists and Airwaves.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Todd Merrell’s work illustrates a fascination with the imperceptible environment of electromagnetic radiation that shortwave radio and processing can capture, and transform into an immersive, musical environment.

Kabir Carter’s work moves between performance and installation, and focuses on the physical and emotional effects of architecture and acoustics in private and public spaces. http://www.kabircarter.com/

Terry Nauheim explores sound and visual relationships through digital media, drawing, and installation. http://www.terrynauheim.com/

Lázaro Valiente is sound artist Mauricio Pastrana, his work is comprised of sounds and silence originating in the daily improvisations of life.

Yuko Oda to Speak at 2011 International Symposium on Democracy

Symposium on Democracy:  My Digital Life @ The Speed of Light.

As digital technology becomes increasingly ubiquitous, it is also becoming more social and participatory; consequently, new opportunities as well as dangers swiftly enter and exit our fast-paced lives. From the early visions of cyberspace and games to current discussions concerning open government, profound transformations in healthcare and science, innovation and sustainability, something powerful is evolving.  This year’s Symposium on Democracy will examine the many novel and dynamic uses of digital technology as well as its potential to revolutionize our personal and work lives through enhanced communications, online communities, and collaboration.

Yuko Oda, Plenary Speaker for Technology and Art Keynote Presentation Wednesday, September 21, 2011, from 9:30 – 10:30 A.M, Champ Auditorium Break out session, 10:45 – 11:45 A.M., Coulter Science Center

What is Art and Technology?  A Glimpse at Technological Art Amidst Global Shifts of Consciousness

We live in a rapidly changing world of technological advances, environmental crisis, and global shifts of consciousness. This presentation will offer students a broad overview of historical and contemporary artworks that have shaped the field of Technology Art today, and focus on exploring contemporary artworks that pose essential questions and concepts responding to the social/environmental/political/economical chaos we live in.

Michael Schiavi appears in L.A. filmmaker Jeffrey Schwarz’s documentary “Vito”

 

Dear NYIT friends, 

L.A. filmmaker Jeffrey Schwarz has finished Vito, his new documentary on Vito Russo.  It will have its world premiere on Friday, October 14 at the New York Film Festival at Lincoln Center.

I’ve seen a rough cut of the film, and I can tell you that it’s superb, a perfect tribute to Vito and his legacy to the LGBT community.  Featuring original interviews of Lily Tomlin, Larry Kramer, Michelangelo Signorile, Armistead Maupin, Bruce Vilanch, Arnie Kantrowitz, and the late Arthur Evans, among dozens of others, Vito is a comprehensive portrait not only of the man himself, but of twenty years of gay and AIDS activism.  I couldn’t be prouder to be appearing in such a distinguished film.

I hope to see you at Lincoln Center!  For more info on the film and on ordering tickets—which are going fast!--please click here:  http://us2.campaign-archive1.com/?u=c9432948c83a6659f91341b4c&id=367e24fcca&e=f5789a1988

All the best,
