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 ].

TERMINALapsu.org Announces Launch of New Work by Michael Demers


Dates:
Mon Nov 15, 2010 00:00 - Sun Nov 14, 2010

TERMINALapsu.org announces the launch of"The Sky is Falling (A Day in the Life)" by Michael Demers

TERMINALapsu.org has awarded four artists with small stipends to aid in the creation of new internet based artworks. This is the first year of an annual award process.

This year we are pleased to announce the four artists selected are Jody Zellen, Michael Demers, Benjamin Baker-Smith, and Scott Kildall. Their proposals were selected from scores of entries.

On November 15, "The Sky is Falling (A Daqy in the Life) " by Michael Demers will launch.

"This work consists of captured Sony PlayStation3 video from Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, edited to reflect the seamless passing of game time and "real" time. One minute of "real" time equals approximately 30 minutes of game time. The resulting 24 two-minute videos record the passing of one game day.

References to playable characters, AI characters, and accompanying sound effects have been edited from the video in an effort to focus on the notion of a virtual space with the possibility of non-virtual habitation, defined in part by the passing of game time during the observers "real" time. The health meter, magic meter, stamina meter, weapon and magic selections and the game compass have been unedited as a digital referent in the hyperreal environment of the game engine.

The footage was captured using the Haupauge HD PVR, and edited on a MacBook Pro using Final Cut Pro. The 24 html pages were built in Adobe Dreamweaver, and use javascript to call a specific page (and the embedded video) based upon the users local time (ex: If someone is viewing the page at 3:40pm local time, video15, containing footage from 3:00 to 3:59pm game time, will be played). An additional piece of javascript tells the browser to refresh itself every two minutes, to ensure that subsequent videos will load appropriately."

Lines of Life by Jody Zellen


Dates:
Mon Oct 25, 2010 00:00 - Mon Oct 25, 2010

Terminal is pleased to announce the launch of Lines of Life by Jody Zellen.
http://TERMINALapsu.org

"I am interested in drawing and how a computer algorithm traces an image turning it into a line drawing. In the "Lines of Life" I will begin with a grid of images that are computer traces of news imagery, that when rolled over display the source image. From this grid will be 72 different clickable squares each that takes you down a different life line. The subject for the pathways is the perils of war, as war imagery has predominated in the media over the last year. An integral part of this project will be a series of Flash animations that utilize clips of soldier's videos of the Iraq war uploaded to You Tube. The film footage is not credited as it is meant to fill in the background becoming the live action behind the line drawings and be the motivation for the movements within."

Jody Zellen is a Los Angeles based artist who works in many media simultaneously making net art, photographs, installations, public art and artists books. She employs media-generated representations as raw material for aesthetic and social investigations. Recent projects include "The Unemployed" a interactive data visualization at Cerritos College (Los Angles, 2009), a site specific interactive installation entitled "The Blackest Spot" at Fringe Exhibitions (Los Angles, 2008). Other interactive installations include "Trigger" (Pace University, NY, 2005) and "Disembodied Voices" (Los Angles, 2004). Zellen's interactive website "Ghost City" begun in 1997 is an ever changing meditation on the urban environment. "Crowds and Power" was the October 2002 portal for the Whitney Museum's artport. Other recent net art projects include "Without A Trace" (a 2009 turbulence.org commission), urbanfragments.net, allthenewsthatfittoprint.net, talking-walls.com and disembodiedvoices.com.
