Uploading and downloading are ubiquitous behaviors in our day-to-day, and so the virtual invades the real, data sets mesh, personalities blur, and aesthetics run rampant. With a book from The Institute of Social Hypocrisy as provocateur, six artists put “The Sound of Downloading Makes me want to Upload” into form. The work takes shape as digital compositions anchored in spatiotemporal objects, developed through IRL + online practice for this exhibition.

Digital catalog, online programming and downloadables available throughout the month of November http://get-put.net, Curated by Kelani Nichole

Performance @9PM | gridworks6000 by a bill miller

grdwrks6000 is a live audio/video performance piece developed by a. bill miller. The video incorporates a realtime video feed from a camera pointed at the projection field. This input is processed through a feedback loop and as ASCII art. In performance, the artist controls audio samples that coincide with changes in the visual characteristics.

As the piece is performed, elements of improvisation and interactivity are introduced to the unique and transitory elements into the mix between analog presentation of digital environments. The work has been performed in a range of live venues in Chicago, St. Paul, and Milwaukee. It was presented with an interactive component during BYOB Philly at the Little Berlin Gallery.

Discussion + Closing Reception for 'Distributed Collectives'


Dates:
Sat Aug 27, 2011 18:30 - Sat Aug 27, 2011

Location:
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
United States of America

Join us for the closing reception of Distributed Collectives, a show of artwork from the internet.

Manya Scheps will moderate a live, online discussion concentrating on the theoretical implications of both the little berlin exhibition and net  art in general. The chat will be projected on one of the gallery's walls as the conversation unfolds. It will occur during the closing reception for the exhibition, and will serve as an ambient framing of the pieces in the show before they are powered down. This discussion serves both as an extension of the exhibition as well as an integration of it, informally and literally connecting the featured artists with each other and their medium.

An essay produced for Distributed Collectives by Manya Scheps titled 'Net Art: Black Sun, White Halloween' is available in the digital catalog.

If you are intersted in participating in the discussion remotely, please write to berlin.little@gmail.com for connection information.

Work in the show ranges from creative coding projects like browser extensions and spatial recognition, to augmented reality public art, to browser-based motion art and physical installations.
