YAEL KANAREK, winner of the Netizens 2003 international net art competition, will show her work for the first time in Italy in a one-person exhibition opening Nov. 25, 2003 in the spaces of the Sala 1 gallery in Rome.

"World of Awe" ( is the brainchild of new media artist Yael Kanarek. It is an interdisciplinary project that revolves around the story of a traveler in search of a lost treasure. Through a portale situated at number 419 east 6th street in Manhattan, a traveler passes into the Sunset/Sunrise -- a desert terrain locked in the mindframe between night and day, in search of a lost treasure. The voyage is documented in a journal found on a laptop evidently built by the traveler lost in Silicon Valley, a graveyard for old computer compoenents.

The journal contains letters to an absent lover, travel logs and descriptions of the unique navigation tools. Following a hi-tech/lo-tech, double sided map (Eep & Moo), the traveler describes a search for a treasure that keeps relocating. The only remains found are crumbs fallen from the body of the treasure that surprisingly resemble candy sprinkles.
The exhibit will include a special sound installation/video projection of her images and the music of composer Yoav Gal together with a standalone computer station to see the site and a series of desert digital landscapes on the gallery walls.

Kanarek, born in Israel and a resident of New York, has participated in numerous exhibitions and new media iniatives, including the 2002 Whitney Biennial in New York and Web Commissions Chapter 2 at San Francisco Moma. She is represented in New York by Bitforms, a major contemporary art gallery dedicated to new media art.
