WoodEar by Peter Traub at Pace Digital Gallery and Turbulence


Dates:
Tue Apr 16, 2013 17:00 - Tue Apr 16, 2013

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

Pace Digital Gallery and Turbulence.org present WoodEar (Turbulence@PaceDigitalGallery3)
Peter Traub in collaboration with Jennifer Lauren Smith

Opening April 16th, show runs through May 3rd

Commissioned specifically for Pace Digital Gallery "WoodEar,” the installation, expands into the gallery the software that launched on Turbulence in September 2012.

The work attempts to merge the dynamic qualities of the biological network of a tree -- roots gathering water and nutrients; leaves using sunlight to produce food; and phloem and xylem moving water and nutrients across the structure -- with the digital network of the Internet. A series of sensors attached to the tree stream data on the state of its environment – light, temperature, air pressure, and wind. This live data, merged with images and recordings of the tree’s immediate surroundings, is made audible and visible in the gallery.

Turbulence@PaceDigitalGallery is generously supported by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts

An exhibition of performances for video featuring artists Jacob Dahlgren (Stockholm), Terrance Houle (Calgary), The Icelandic Love Corporation (Reykjavik), Shana Moulton (New York), Jon Sasaki (Toronto), and Steven Yazzie (Phoenix)

Jacob Dahlgren, who also enacts his signature daily performance of wearing striped t-shirts, stages a peaceful protest through an idyllic California mountain trail, where a small group carries pole-mounted recreations of Swedish abstract painter Olle Baertling’s works. These paintings become signs, and those who bear them participate in both “protest” and absurd juxtaposition. Known for hijacking stereotypes to hilarious effect, Terrance Houle exploits his First Nations identity, donning traditional costume and performing a set of translated hand signs as he takes us on a personal and cultural mini-tour of street, beach, and park. The Icelandic Love Corporation re-imagine themselves as three ladies of luxury, reposed in the final days of a global ice melt - here we find them amidst a stunning landscape singing, hunting, and enjoying the finer things. Shana Moulton’s alter ego, a middle-aged recluse named Cynthia, finds comfort in the magic of Avon branded crystals and palmistry, which free her from her doldrums and send her on a rapturous multi-coloured romp through the forest. Jon Sasaki’s “everyman” drives his car on the highway, unfolded map in hand. This activity seems quaint in the age of smartphones and GPS, but, when he fails to watch the road ahead and his car does not collide, his protection is suspect; we can’t help but wonder - what is the trick? Steven Yazzie’s handmade go-cart trails into Monument Valley, where man and vehicle become a veritable drawing machine. The result, frenetic line renderings of the iconic landscape, are fraught with tension not unlike that heaped upon the historically charged landscape itself.

Pace Digital Gallery present Codings, an exhibition opening Feb 28th


Dates:
Tue Feb 28, 2012 17:00 - Tue Feb 28, 2012

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

Pace Digital Gallery is pleased to present Codings
~Curated by Nick Montfort, MIT

Feb 28th - March 30th, 2012
panel with the artists and curator, and opening reception, Tuesday, Feb 28th, 5 - 7pm

Works by: Giselle Beiguelman (Brazil), Commodore (USA/Canada), Adam Parrish (USA), Jörg Piringer (Austria), Casey Reas (USA), Pall Thayer (Iceland/USA)

Codings shows the computer as an aesthetic, programmed device that computes on characters. The works in the show continue and divert the traditions of concrete poetry and short-form recreational programming; they eschew elaborate multimedia combinations and the use of network resources and instead operate on encoded letters, numbers, punctuation, and other symbols that are on the computer itself.
