The Blur of the Otherworldly: Contemporary Art, Technology, and the Paranormal
Center for Art and Visual Culture, UMBC, Baltimore, MD
Curated by Mark Alice Durant and Jane D. Marsching
October 20, 2005 -- December 17, 2005,
Opening Reception October 20th from 5 - 7pm
Organized by the Center for Art and Visual Culture, The Blur of the Otherworldly: Contemporary Art, Technology, and the Paranormal is a major traveling exhibition featuring twenty eight contemporary artists whose work employs modern communication technologies (photography, film, video, computers, radio, internet, and digital media) to explore culturally inbred questions / superstitions concerning parallel worlds to our own.
Today, the amount of attention devoted to paranormal phenomena such as UFOs, demonic possession, psychics, and ghosts in the media indicates that photography 's early fascinations have not disappeared. Millennial angst, bewildering leaps of science, wildly improbable technological inventions, and ever-decreasing wilderness as human sprawl grows exponentially, makes other worlds once again appear possible, even probable, and definitely alluring. Our escalating desire to prove the existence of another dimension (no matter which one) is linked to photography, with its history of providing us with our proofs. Seduced by the invisible in the face of the medium's relentless and dull dependence upon the physical, photography as a tool of fact (in science), fantasy (in spirit photography), and invention (in the hands of artists) is exploring new frontiers once again.
Included in the exhibition are: Mark Amerika, Zoe Beloff, Diane Bertolo, Jeremy Blake, Corrine May Botz, Susan Collins, Gregory Crewdson, Paul DeMarinis, Spencer Finch, Ken Goldberg, Susan Hiller, Marko Maetamm, Miya Masaoka, Jennifer and Kevin McCoy, Mariko Mori, Maria Miranda and Norie Neumark, Paul Pfeiffer, Fred Ressler, John Roach, Ted Serios, Leslie Sharpe, Chrysanne Stathacos, Thomson & Craighead, Suzanne Treister, and Anne Walsh & Chris Kubick

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

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)

Beall Center at UC Irvine. She will also focus her current explorations
of painterly dynamic systems which respond to human gesture and
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.,

JOE-MS is a blind peer-reviewed, on-line journal dedicated to the
scholarly study of the history and theory of electronic media,
especially Television and New Media. It is an inter-disciplinary
journal, and we welcome submissions across the fields and methodologies
that study media and media history.
Our goal is to promote the academic study of electronic media,
especially in light of the rise of digital media and the changes in
formal and expressive capacities resulting from new configurations of
electronic media forms. We solicit the best new scholarly work on
current and historical e-media issues and topics, including work on
inter-medial relations to traditionally non-electronic media (such as
cinema, theater, and print media).
We welcome essays in traditional textual formats. We strongly encourage
submissions that utilize and develop the features that an on-line
journal can afford, in order to realize new analytical and pedagogical
practices and strategies.
Please see our website [http://journals.dartmouth.edu/joems/] for more
