MediaNoche presents: New media artist Ursula Endlicher will perform www.myspace.com from her "Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited" series :: May 12 2007, 8PM :: 161 East 106th Street, between Lexington and Third Avenues.
Ursula will take direction from the site's real-time source code combined with material from her 'html-movement-library', which contains movements and gestures submitted by the public. This will determine the flow of her "Website Impersonations" as she follows these choreographic instructions in MediaNoche. Visitors to the exhibition and passers-by are invited to participate in the performance.
According to the artist, "Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited is a performance series utilizing the html-movement-library for enacting and re-interpreting the "ten most popular" websites. The choreography for each Website Impersonation comes from the real-time html structure of each site, translated by the library into movement suggestions 'on the fly.' As a performer I never know which html tag, and therefore which movement task will come next as this is depending on how the site is scripted at the moment.
MediaNoche is Uptown's first new media gallery where the digital arts and community converge. Only blocks from Museum Mile, MediaNoche is easily reached by the IRT #6 train to East 103rd Street, or by the bus routes along Third and Lexington Avenues.
FREE and open to the public!
