Digital_Matters: An Exhibition of Digital Art
All mediums within fine art hold their unique characteristics that often shape the meaning and the final realization of the work. Digital Matters is an exhibition of art works that reflect the inherent qualities of the digital medium. What is digital matter? How is it used as an artistic medium and what are the intrinsic concerns when working with this particular medium? What themes are derived from working with digital tools and forms? These are the questions that inspired curator, Jenny Hyde, to put together this exhibition as a continuation of her own research and interest in digital art. Ten artists were selected and will be featured in this international exhibition; Dave Beck, Jessica Westbrook, Adam Hinterlang, Richard O’Sullivan, Michal Brzinkski, Julian Palacz, Jason Bolte, Martins Rokis, Ron Lambert and Matt Frieburghaus. The works include forms such as video, sound, digital print and animation. Digital_Matters will open on Dec 3 with a reception from 5 – 8 pm and run through Jan 1, 2011.
Jenny Hyde will present the works in the exhibition as well as discuss the use of digital media within fine art at Saranac Art Projects on Thursday Dec 9 at 6:30 pm.
