SUPERLOWREZ
Dec 17 2005 - March 14 206

Opening reception: Saturday Dec 17 7-10pm at vertexList.
Live 8 bit music performances by David Kristian (Montreal) and Bit Shifter (NYC) (opening 8.30 -10 pm, free admission)

Superlowrez is an experiment in re-visiting a historically significant moment when pixel and bitmap were in their infancy. vertexList and Bit Editions have asked eight artists: Joe Armhein, Brian Conley, Joe McKay, Kristen Lucas, Jillian Mcdonald, Akiko Sakaizumi, Jude Tallichet and Matt Freedman to generate content for custom build matrix of 12X14 pixels, resolution smaller than that of a cursor. Each animation contains 1984 frames, the memory limit of the chip used in production of the device.

The content of this Superlowrez edition reflects a variety of interests and themes that the participating artists have brought to the table. Joe Armhein continues to dissect the absurd lingo of art criticism while Brian Conley transforms a stream of animal brains into a gentle biomorphic flow. Matt Freedman and Kristen Lucas go for humorous, meticulous frame-by-frame stick figure animation. Jude Tallichet remakes the famous Empire State film by Andy Warhol. Akiko Sakaizumi plays with low-bit chickens and arcade game aesthetics. Jillian Mcdonald once again flirts with her virtual love obsession: Billy Bob Thornton. Joe McKay produces a low bit version of rock - paper - scissors.

The highly seductive medium of an LED light has been thoroughly examined in the history of contemporary art. Jenny Holzer’s sentences, Jim Campbell’s videos, Julian Opie’s geometrical pattern animations are just the most obvious examples. This time the glowing light of an LED is used to answer a simple question: how many (or, perhaps how few) pixels does it take to tell a story?

Aron Namenwirth and Jason Van Anden at vertexList

Sat Oct 22, 2005 00:00 - Sat Oct 15, 2005

vertexList space has the pleasure to present :

NONLINEAR COLLATERAL DAMAGE; a group of new pixel based paintings by Aron Namenwirth
and
MIXED FEELINGS; robotic interactive installation by Jason Van Anden.
 
The exhibition will open Saturday, Oct 22 from 7-10 pm and continue until Nov 13, 2005.

Aron Namenwirth’s new paintings are recordings of a superhero culture, camouflaged psychedelic meditations on the state of affairs, diseased micro-macro clubs,
spreading fear and self-destruction.

Source materials include: images of cues, waiting to vote, internet porn, collateral damage , Walmart, rainforest canopies, and healthcare’s images of Americans.

" These secular individual efforts on my part, reflect the failures of idealism, capitalism, and the idea of a mass movement. The flock is lost."
 
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
 

Jason Van Anden’s cybernetic artworks are equally emotional and logical. His verypersonal and humorous installation combines traditional fine art technique
and programming expertise.

Mixed Feelings includes a pair of emotive robotic sculptures named Neil and Iona, who react to gallery environment, visitors and each other;
as wellas an edition of chipboards based on their behavioral algorithms.

More about Jason Van Anden and his artwork can be found on his website www.smileproject.com.
