Dear friends & colleagues,
I'm glad to share with you the Budhaditya Chattopadhyay show at the Widget Art Gallery on IPhone, IPod touch and IPad form May 15th to June 15th, 2013.
About the WAG:
The “WAG" is a mini 3-dimensional, single room gallery that fits into your pocket 'cause I've developed it for IPhone, IPod Touch and I Pad. Every month, directly on your mobile, The “WAG” hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to the dynamic site-specific contest. So, the Widget Art Gallery works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary
exhibitions and as a permanent collections museum because conserves all the past exhibitions inside an online archive. For IPhone and IPod touch, just copy this url http://www.chiarapassa.it/wag/mobile/ in Safari and choose: “add to home” and the WAG's icon will be saved on your IPhone. Do the same for IPad but paste this other URL: http://www.chiarapassa.it/wagipad/mobile/, or download the widget version for Mac osx dashboard at: http://www.chiarapassa.it/publicart.html .

About the exhibition:
The Room within a View by Budhaditya Chattopadhyay
‘The Room within a View’ (2013) stems out of on-going project ‘Doors of Nothingness’ (2012-) as a virtual prototype for a series of sited installations. The project frames and (con)textualizes myriad of thoughts within the mindfulness of a nomadic listener, triggered by pervasive interaction with various immersive but evanescent auditory situations. Essentially experiential, subject-oriented and contemplative in its development, the project explores the itinerant sonic interactions occurring between the listener and constantly emerging environments as cognitive processes of hyper-listening and thinking, which arguably transcend the epistemological constrains of sound. http://budhaditya.org/
Enjoy the show!
Very best, Chiara.
