Martin Howse Performing at Hunter College, April 4, 7pm


Dates:
Fri Apr 04, 2014 19:00 - Fri Apr 04, 2014

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

Howse is a unique new media artist who builds his own electronics and writes his own programs for performance. Berlin-based researcher, artist, inventor and performer Martin Howse traverses the electromagnetic spectrum as a space for exploration that may be manipulated to generate sound and visual. Martin Howse leads "micro_research," a mobile research platform exploring psychogeophysics and asking the questions of where precisely the plague known as software executes.

Recently the Czech cultural center Školská 28 described Martin Howse performance as

"heavily improvised, playing with the collapse of massed, barely functional salvaged equipment and software systems made manifest in sound/noise and image, Howse presents a complex, process-driven constructivist performance; the symphonic rise of the attempt to piece together fugal systematics is played out against the noise of collapse and machine crash at the deserted border of control."

Arts Across the Curriculum and the Integrated Media Arts MFA Program at Hunter College will host a performance by Martin Howse on Friday April 4th at 7pm in the Black Box - Hunter North 543.

Location:
New York, New York

The Hunter College Film and Media Studies Department is searching for an instructor to teach the undergraduate Fall 2013 Concepts in Gaming course.

This course surveys the historical basis of and current practices in game design, which is phase one of game development. Just as a study of rhetoric and persuasive argument lays the foundation for effective written communication, the study of game design lays the foundation for an equally effective digital communication.

This course is scheduled for Fridays from 1:10 - 4pm. The fall 2013 semester begins on August 27th and runs through December 22nd (end of finals period). The course meets for a 14 week period and is followed by a final.

New York Hall of Science Presents ReGeneration


Dates:
Sat Oct 27, 2012 10:00 - Sun Jan 13, 2013

Location:
Corona Park, New York
United States of America

ReGeneration, a new exhibition exploring the relationship between sustainability and cultural vitality, opens October 27 at the New York Hall of Science (NYSCI). The exhibition includes interactive works by 10 artists that inspire visitors to think about the notion of cultural sustainability through collaborative engagement and futuristic visions built upon the history and traditions of New York’s diverse neighborhoods. The exhibition runs through January 13, 2013.

Despite the near ubiquity of the term “sustainability,” there remains significant ambiguity about everything from the actual meaning of the term to overarching solutions to the challenges we face as a community. Technology and behavioral changes including energy production, agriculture, recycling and pollution reduction are all on the table as we work to understand and address the challenge of sustainability.

The artists in ReGeneration are Scott Kildall, Shih Chieh Huang, Ricardo Miranda Zuniga, Biomodd, Futurefarmers, The Living + Soft Lab, Zach Lieberman, Nick Yulman, Carl Skelton, Marisa Jahn & Stephanie Rothenberg. Curated by Steve Dietz and Amanda Parkes
