The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts presents stylus, a project created by installation artist Ann Hamilton in response to the Pulitzer building, which was designed by architect Tadao Ando. The exhibition is on view through January 22, 2011.
As a visual artist whose contributions to contemporary art span three decades, Ann Hamilton's installations are notable in part for their capacity to weave a broad palette of media into engaging sensory environments. Conceived in response to the Pulitzer's mission to be both sanctuary and laboratory, stylus is structured around live acoustic elements. The sound design was developed in collaboration with composer and sound designer Shahrokh Yadegari.
Accompanying the project is a similarly experiential multimedia online catalogue, located at annhamilton.pulitzerarts.org. Visitors can explore Ann Hamilton's work and immerse themselves in the images, video, and audio that fill the installation.
Bull MIletic's latest work "Mise en abyme" is currently showing at Galleri Ram, Oslo.
The exhibition Bull.Miletic: Mise en Abyme features the artists’ most recent body of work conceived during their residency at Cité International des Arts in Paris, France. The works in the exhibition are based on historical representations of modernity in contemporary Paris with a particular focus on the city’s constant negotiation between the future and the past.
In his seminal essay Paris, Capital of the Nineteenth Century, Walter Benjamin suggested that 19th-century Paris was the origin of modernity itself. Once a city defined by groundbreaking technology and artistic accomplishments, contemporary Paris succeeded in preserving the future as an idea of the past. By drawing direct references to the radically restructured understanding of time and space emerging in the 19th-century progressive Paris, the works are connecting current discourses of the effects of the networked society to its industrial origins.
Bull.Miletic are Synne Bull and Dragan Miletic who live and work together in Oslo, Norway. Central to their artistic practice is the question of how moving images form conceptions of space and influence our visual perception of reality. Their videos examine cities, architecture and landscape as containers of emotions, memories, and political decisions. Their artistic residency at Cité International des Arts was enabled through the generous support of Ingrid Lindbäck Langaards foundation.
WalkSpace for the iPhone
WalkSpace is an alternative walking art app for the iPhone to let you navigate the city in a new and unexpected way.
A selection of cultural and everyday routes are remapped to your current location, these routes range from cultural trails such as routes from James Joyce's Ulysses to individual daily walks. Walks can be shared with photos and route maps and users can add their own routes to the app.
WalkSpace is designed to take you places you mightn't otherwise go, to see familiar places in a new light opening a window to chance encounters and experiences. The app is inspired by the Situationist derive and acts as a locative media version of the classic experimental technique for re-enchanting the city.
WalkSpace is a locative media art project by Conor McGarrigle now available as a free download from the appstore.
