BIO
My work is about ethics and it asks the oldest of questions: what does it mean to live a good life?
What is our responsibility to each other, to our families, to those with disabilities, to the past? In the
face of tragedy how do we reaffirm that life is good. These are the themes of my work.

I am an associate professor at Austin Peay State University and live in Clarksville, TN with my wife, Jennifer,
and our four children, Marlena, Aidan, Hope and Elliott.

I also work in the audio/ video collaborative Black & Jones and perform in the vj duo [ fladry + jones ].

Terminal Announces the Launch of "Drawing Circuits" By Gottfried Haider


Dates:
Mon Oct 21, 2013 00:00 - Sat Dec 31, 2050

Terminal and the Center of Excellence in the Creative Arts at Austin Peay State University are pleased to announce the launch of Drawing Circuits by Gottfried Haider. Haider is a recipient of a 2013 – 2014 Terminal Award. The Terminal Award is granted annually to four artists to help in the creation of new internet based artworks.

Drawing Circuits is a website that guides users to draw (electrical) circuit boards using their mouse or trackpad to free draw. Drawing Circuits juxtaposes the practice of drawing with the creation of circuitry. Haider is dealing with the largely hidden and undervalued nature of electronics in contemporary media art contexts. The site functions both as a facilitator for an experience, as well as a tool for the creation of circuit boards. The experience includes imagery, music and interventions, that bring elements from a drawing studio into the website. As a tool, the website allows users to export their drawings in a way that they can be easily machined into real copper clad boards ( using a CNC mill or a vinyl cutter).

Gottfried Haider is a media artist born in Vienna. He studied Digital Arts at Vienna University of Applied Arts before joining UCLA’s Design Media Arts program on a Fulbright Scholarship. His work was awarded an Award of Distinction (2nd place) at Prix Ars Electronica 2004.

Watters is a recipient of a 2012 – 2013 Terminal Award. The Terminal Award is granted annually to four artists to help in the creation of new internet based artworks.

The Poor House is a participatory art project organized by artist, Angela Watters. Currently, the project is accepting submissions of student loan debt numbers from arts graduates. In the coming months personal invitations will be sent to well-known artists requesting a donation of a small work of art to decorate the interior of the gallery like interior of a $5 flea market dollhouse, or the Poor House, which will be transformed into a sculpture offered to collectors at the amount of collected student loan debt. The Poor House Project website compares debt collected with realized prices of paintings sold at auction. As the debt totals rise, the featured painting on the home page will change to a painting sold for a comparable amount.

They can see who comments on their status, but will only see their names instead of their aggregate value.
