LEA New Media Exhibition
Re-Drawing Boundaries

Curator: Jeremy Hight
Senior Curators: Lanfranco Aceti and Christiane Paul

This exhibition presents key innovators in Locative Media, New Media and
Mapping in a show that works to display not only fields and works but more
of cross pollinations, progressions, the need to move beyond labels just
like the importance of reconsidering borders on maps, what space is and
what pragmatic tools and previous forms can do.

The selected artists are:

Kate Armstrong, Alan Bigelow, Louisa Bufardeci, Laura Beloff, J.R
Carpenter, Jonah Brucker Cohen, Vuk Cosic, Fallen Fruit, Luka Frelih,
Buckminster Fuller, Rolf Van Gelder, Natalie Jeremijenko, Carmin Kurasic,
Paula Levine, Mez, Lize Mogel, Jason Nelson, Christian Nold, Esther Polak,
Proboscis, Kate Pullinger, Carlo Ratti, Douglas Repetto, Teri Rueb,
Stanza, Jen Southern, Kai Syng Tan, Jeffrey Valance, Sarah Willams, Jeremy
Wood, Tim Wright.

We are in an age of cartographic awareness that is arguably unprecedented,
but is of a malleable map, of layered spaces, of maps in new contexts.
Boundaries are not the only things that are being reconsidered on maps:
mapping systems and our base sense of space. It is how we see and share
information, communicate, react and remember. The sea change is occurring
right now and it is being led by the ideas of works of these radical
thinkers and others who are making the static map and our sense of space
open up.

The range of works in this exhibit have not only shown in Biennials in
some cases or started whole fields of work in others, but more
importantly, show in them a connectivity of exploration and practice
between many people and works in differently named fields. Data is not
just cold measure; place is not static; function can be many fold and
startlingly so by intention. Space and location are not simply to be
marked or named. There are histories, tensions, conflicts, stories, many
types of data and ways of measure.

This show will exhibit 2 new important artists/practitioners each week
from several different fields.

We begin with locative pioneer, Teri Rueb, and cross platform provocateur,
Jonah Brucker Cohen. Both look at space, data and why we should be more
aware and inquisitive but in very different styles and aesthetics.

2nd International Graduate Conference in Communication and Culture: The Culture of Remix

This inter-disciplinary graduate conference seeks to address questions concerning the multiple dimensions of remix at the intersection of culture and communication.  Lawrence Lessig has proposed “remix” as one of the main outcomes of social and cultural practices enabled by new technologies that allow for easy production and sharing.

Failure Support Group – Help Failure Succeed!

Consider donating to help produce a Failure Support Group in Baltimore, MD, in April 2010.

Check out our video on Kickstarter and donate now!
The Institute for Infinitely Small Things is interested in failure and wants to produce a Failure Support Group in Baltimore, MD, as part of the Transmodern Festival. But we can’t make that happen without your help to donate small bits of cash to get us there.

Art projects fail a lot, particularly those that are participatory, public and/or social. They fail for different reasons and cause myriad revelations. Nevertheless, the structures that we use to talk about these works and contexts where they are presented often don’t leave room for discussing the failures plainly and objectively. Our Failure Support Group will provide an open and honest forum for creative folks to talk about their failures in a supportive context. Help the Institute for Infinitely Small Things bring the Failure Support Group to Baltimore by donating a small amount of money now.
