"WOMAN WAKING_PAPER DISSOLVE" a PROJECTED 3D COMPUTER ANIMATION by
ANDREA ACKERMAN -- computer sound composition by Matthew Greenbaum

Program notes on "Woman Waking":

Andrea Ackerman created "Woman Waking", a 3D computer animation using Maya, a software program used in the film and special effects industry. Ackerman is specifically interested in creating a new kind of 3D character, one with a sense of an emotionally complex inner life, and thus creating a meaningful sense of seamless continuity - digital to human. The virtual monochrome gray woman is at once mysteriously natural yet obviously artificial. She undergoes a series of ambiguously expressive transformations, related to the transformations evoked in the music, and in the process blurs the boundaries between inner worlds and outer worlds, between the senses, visual, auditory, and kinesthetic, and between the natural world and the synthetic one.

Andrea Ackerman is a digital artist living in New York. In her previous 3D computer animation, "Rose Breathing", a synthetic rose is imbued with such human qualities as respiration and locomotion. "Rose Breathing" has been shown internationally, including in a recent show at the San Jose Museum of Art, "Brides of Frankenstein", curated by Marcia Tanner and at the Wood Street Galleries, in "Allure Ellectronica", curated by Murray Horne. Ackerman's just published catalog essay for the show "Can We Fall in Love with a Machine?" curated by artist Claudia Hart also at Wood Street Galleries, is a cultural analysis of the role of artists as mediators in our growing relationship to artificial and virtual life. Currently, Ackerman and Hart are working on "Diaphonous", a project to promote women artists working in computer animation, interactivity and robotics.
