Camille Utterback (San Francisco) is a pioneering artist and programmer
in the field of interactive video installation. In addition to an
extensive international exhibit history, recent awards include a
Transmediale International Media Art Festival Award (2005), and a
Rockefeller Foundation New Media Fellowship (2002). Utterback received
a US patent for the video tracking system she developed as a research
fellow at New York University (2004).

Camille will discuss her interactive video installations which create
playful, physical interaction between participants. Works will include
'Text Rain' (1999 with Romy Achituv), 'Liquid Time' (2001), and a
number of pieces in the 'External Measures Series' (2001 - 2005)
including 'Untitled 6', which she has just completed for a show at the
Beall Center at UC Irvine. She will also focus her current explorations
of painterly dynamic systems which respond to human gesture and
movement.

John Klima employs a variety of technologies to produce artwork from
electronics and computer hardware and software. Consistently connecting
the virtual to the real, Klima builds large scale electro-mechanical
installations driven by 3d game software he programs from scratch.
In 2003 he focused on his long-time fascination with model railroading
to create his first HO scale railroad piece, titled simply "Train."
Exhibited in December 2003 at Postmasters Gallery in New York, "Train"
was shown in April 2005 at the DeCordova Museum in Boston.

Klima has exhibited extensively in museums and galleries in the U.S.,
Europe, and Asia. His exhibitions include BitStreams at the Whitney
Museum of American Art as well as the 2002 Whitney Biennial. He has
also exhibited at Eyebeam, The New Museum of Contemporary Art, PS.1 and
The Brooklyn Museum of Art. Klima is currently a research scientist in
the Mathematics department at New York University, and adjunct
Professor of Digital Media at the Rhode Island School of Design. John
Klima is represented by Postmasters in New York, and Bank Gallery in
Los Angeles.

Urbanisms exhibition Apr - June, reception May 3


Dates:
Tue May 03, 2005 00:00 - Thu Apr 14, 2005

Pace Digital Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition curated by Annette Weintraub.

Urbanisms
Pace Digital Gallery
163 William St, NYC
Tu - Fr, 10 - 6
info digitalgallery@pace.edu
http://www.pace.edu/digitalgallery

artists: David Crawford • Sylvain Hourany • Ruy Klein Architecture + Paul Myoda • Stanza • Marek Walczek + Martin Wattenberg

Urbanisms is a selection of projects that remap and revisualize the city through the processing and reinterpretation of diverse streams of information: sound, captured visual images and texts. The projects in this exhibition reflect the dynamic diversities of urban patterning and permit us to perceive the city in different ways: through surprising juxtapositions of sounds, in the minute physical gestures of its inhabitants, in a changing collision of passers-by and their environment, in the accumulations of data flowing from online to physical space, and in the mechanisms of surveillance and control that provide a constant stream of visuals as byproduct.

Urbanisms offers an expanded vision of urbanism—or more precisely, a multiplicity of urbanisms—that is global, dynamic and mutating and present a spectacle of ever-shifting patterns of visual, aural and cultural information to be processed, manipulated and reconstituted anew.

exhibition April 12-June 10, 2005
reception Tuesday, May 3, 2005, 6-8 pm

Kristen Lucas has been screening and exhibiting work in the US and abroad since 1996. Her sci-fi distopias and conspiracy theories balance seriousness with humor, and have resulted in video, internet, sculpture, performance, and installation works. Lucas’s works are represented by Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) and Postmasters Gallery. She recently participated in the Lower East Side Rotating Studio Program (Artists Alliance, Inc) and produced a radio play for the 6th Werkleitz Biennale in Halle, Germany. Lucas received her BFA from Cooper Union in New York in 1994 and is taking drumming lessons from a CD.
Kristin Lucas will present patch-works for correspondence and performance in addition to exercises in self-medication. These patch-works are informed by Lucas’s on-going interest in mediated communication, the subtleties between brainwashing, programming, and evolutionary mutation, compliance and compatibility, and by research on the social ecology of Silicon Valley and the legacy of Cold War science. Among the works Lucas will present are Your New ID (2005), an on-and-offline correspondence project, and Bubble Bath (2005), a computer animation of an “imagined” machine that randomly heaves silicon chips and pills.
