Camille Utterback (San Francisco) is a pioneering artist and programmer
in the field of interactive video installation. In addition to an
extensive international exhibit history, recent awards include a

Rockefeller Foundation New Media Fellowship (2002). Utterback received
a US patent for the video tracking system she developed as a research
fellow at New York University (2004).
Camille will discuss her interactive video installations which create
playful, physical interaction between participants. Works will include
'Text Rain' (1999 with Romy Achituv), 'Liquid Time' (2001), and a
number of pieces in the 'External Measures Series' (2001 - 2005)
including 'Untitled 6', which she has just completed for a show at the
Beall Center at UC Irvine. She will also focus her current explorations
of painterly dynamic systems which respond to human gesture and
John Klima employs a variety of technologies to produce artwork from
electronics and computer hardware and software. Consistently connecting
the virtual to the real, Klima builds large scale electro-mechanical
installations driven by 3d game software he programs from scratch.
In 2003 he focused on his long-time fascination with model railroading
to create his first HO scale railroad piece, titled simply "Train."
Exhibited in December 2003 at Postmasters Gallery in New York, "Train"
was shown in April 2005 at the DeCordova Museum in Boston.
Klima has exhibited extensively in museums and galleries in the U.S.,
Europe, and Asia. His exhibitions include BitStreams at the Whitney
Museum of American Art as well as the 2002 Whitney Biennial. He has
also exhibited at Eyebeam, The New Museum of Contemporary Art, PS.1 and
The Brooklyn Museum of Art. Klima is currently a research scientist in
the Mathematics department at New York University, and adjunct
Professor of Digital Media at the Rhode Island School of Design. John
Klima is represented by Postmasters in New York, and Bank Gallery in
