The Upgrade! w/Diane Ludin, Thurs, Aug 4

Posted by Yael Kanarek | Thu Jul 28th 2005 8:02 a.m.


We are delighted to have Diane Ludin for a second talk. Diane gave
her first Upgrade! talk
in July 2000. This time, Diane will present two projects: Memoryflesh
2.0, a Turbulence
commission about the Human Genome and iBPE, her Patent database project.

An artist and writer, Diane Ludin has been using the internet as a
resource since 1996.
She draws together voices of intimacy, confession and fragmented
illusion. Her collections focus
on the changing nature of "embodiment", representation and
communication as determined by
publicly available information.

She has exhibited both her solo and collaborative works in the US and
Abroad. Commissioned
works include projects for The Walker Art Center, Franklin Furnace,
Turbulence.org and the
Whitney Museum's Artport. Collaborative performances and broadcasts
with The Electronic
Disturbance Theater, FAKESHOP, Las Fantasmas, Prema Murthy, Francesca
DiRimini,
Ricardo Dominguez, and Agnese Trocchi.
