About the exhibition: 'bust'

Nearly a decade ago I was visiting the Cleveland Art Museum when I wandered into a room of Greek and Roman stone busts. Nearby there were obnoxious, neoclassical busts of US presidents. I had the idea to make replicas of these important-looking artifacts out of latex and make them jiggle with an internal motor. I never got around to doing that, but after looking at WAG's space I was reminded of my plan to animate the busts. This project is the outcome of that idea. rollinleonard.com

Live Sculpture


Dates:
Wed Nov 16, 2011 11:55 - Sat Dec 31, 2011

Dear friends,

thanks for continuing to download my IPhone APP "Virtual Prigione"
http://itunes.apple.com/it/app/v-prigione/id434571770?mt=8
I'm also glad to share with you “Live sculpture”, an interactive video-sculpture project beside the "Virtual Prigione".
"Live sculpture" is an interactive video-performance, where the body of the viewer is fully participating. The user, in fact, when in front of the web-cam installed into the exhibition’s environment, is scanned, filmed in real time, then revived and reshaped in a human scale video projection, as a three-dimensional marble sculpture. This new 3-D live image of the viewer-sculpture is entirely built of an ever-changing interactive mesh, tuning into and reacting to body movement, environment light and speed of the spectator’s movement.

Lorna Mills exhibition, at the WAG - Widget Art Gallery for IPhone and IPad


Dates:
Fri Oct 07, 2011 12:45 - Mon Nov 07, 2011

Dear friends,
I'm glad to share with you the Lorna Mills
exhibition, at the WAG - Widget Art Gallery for IPhone and IPad. From
Oct. 07 til Nov. 07-2011.
Hope you'll enjoy it, Kind Regards, Chiara

About the exhibition: 'Operatic Narcoleptic'
Making
found gif collages is akin to entering a gargantuan stream of moving
images, extracting dynamic pieces that are sexy, violent, poignant,
& hilarious and repurposing them for my own mysterious needs. I can
lay claim to the choices and juxtapositions I make, as well as the
distortions and alterations, but not to the sources themselves. Those
are generally extracted from news footage, nature
broadcasts, youTube uploads, Hollywood movie footage etc. It's sort
of
like an art of participation that illuminates to me how I define myself
as an artist, making images amongst many many image producers that
don't necessarily position themselves as artists, (yet manage to engage
me fully with their creations.)

About the exhibition ongoing now inside the WAG:
"Happening Soon".
The
waiting is action itself: it's a movement aiming to something that is
going to happen. Bluring the line beteewn the artist and the viewer, I
create a paradox: while the waiting has an ending, here, thanks to the
loop, it becomes endless. Roberta Lisca works as a conceptualizer, robertalisca.com
