WTF:

What is a "dorkbot"?! The idea of the international dorkbot network is "people doing strange things with electricity" and meeting in informal, friendly environments to discuss their projects. These projects could include hardware hacks, New Media Art projects, creative code, circuit bent musical instruments or wild DIY garage science!

Catherine Forster presents her artwork and Live Box Gallery @ Upgrade! Chicago Tuesday June 8, 7 PM FREE!


Dates:
Tue Jun 08, 2010 00:00 - Fri Jun 04, 2010

Catherine Forster presents her artwork and Live Box Gallery @ Upgrade! Chicago Tuesday June 8, 7 PM FREE!

Catherine Forster is a Chicago-based filmmaker, artist, curator of Live Box Gallery in Chicago. Her trajectory as an artist began with careers in microbiology and business. As a result, observation and authenticity are the bedrock of her work. As a microbiologist her preferred medium was a microscope; today it is a camera. Forster’s fascination with the world beneath the microscope transformed to the extraordinary arena played out beyond the lens. This sensibility also extends to her vision for her curatorial project Live Box, a non-profit nomadic new media art space, which features (often abstract and pattern-based) local and international video art in venues throughout Chicago.

Recent exhibitions of Forster’s own work include the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum Chicago, Carnegie Art Museum, Merwin Gallery Illinois Wesleyan University, South Bend Regional Art Museum, Flint Institute of Art, Orange County Contemporary Art Center, Exit Art (NY), Hyde Park Art Center Chicago, and the Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius, Lithuania. Films by Forster have been screened at the Sao Paul International Short Film Festival, Echotrope New Media Arts Festival (Omaha) , Simultan Media Arts Festival (Romania), Echo Park Film Center (LA), Magmart Film Festival Casoria International Contemporary Art Museum (Italy), Directors Lounge (Berlin), and San Diego International Women’s Film Festival.
