New Media Art Exhibition on CD-ROM

Posted by Rhizome | Wed Oct 16th 1996 1 a.m.

I've just released "Technophobia" and I'm currently researching for the
second CD. It doesn't matter how large or small the piece is only that
it is original, thought provoking work.

I'm looking forward to seeing what artists are making with new
technology, including those coming from other cultural sectors such as
video and music.

The exhibition "Technophobia" is the first art exhibition made
specifically for CD-ROM. The emphasis is on an examination of multimedia
as a medium and its future application in art practice.

"Technophobia" is the first collection of art of this kind. In addition
to the original multimedia artwork on the CD it's also possible to
access a studio visit.

You can also view artwork by the artists at our Web Site along with
previews of the works on the CD and special web projects which change
weekly.

Artists featured in this exhibition are: Judith Ahern, Bill Albertini,
Huma Bhabha, Joseph Ferrari, Alan Koninger, Tim Maul, Christian Perez,
Troy Innocent, Guillaume Wolf and Genevieve Glaucker and Jody Zellen.

The CD also features music by David Barnes and Charles Cohen, Moniek
Darge, Joshua Fried, The Happy Jacks, Fugitive Pope, Phil Niblock, Mike
Hovanscek with Pointless Orchestra and John Hajeski with Post Prandials.

The exhibition will travel internationally.

gigabytes per artist submission. All graphics, sound, text, and movies

interested in how artists will use the interactive possibilities of the
