The Workings of Media

[Art and Artists]

The Workings of Media [Art and Artists] is a series of presentations, workshops, open studios and exhibitions to understand social and cultural changes reflected through the lens of art and artists.  Curator and director Carol Parkinson has selected these artists because of their use of the new media technology including data sonification and visualization, immersive sound, smell and social networks.  The Art and Technology program is a component of our Creative Residency and Sponsored Projects programs and seeks to create a responsive public context for the appreciation of new work and to advance the art’s community and the public’s appreciation of the use of technology in art.

Exhibiting Artists-in-Residence:  Dafna Naphtali, Valerie Hallier, Charlotte Mundy, Joseph Morris, Andrew Haik Demirjian

ABOUT COLLECTION

Autonomous Prism Collection is a single serial artwork that consists of over 9,000 digital images created through digital collage and algorithmic manipulation, the works were made from 2010-present.

Each image array or sequence of images which individually the artist calls analysands, a term borrowed from psychoanalysis to mean an image, event or artifact that is to be analysed, display both an immense amount of variation and at the same time a strong ‘genetic’ continuity.

The majority of the Autonomous Prism Collection are images chosen from 249K total images that were made from a single source video found on his computer screen one night while working at an art residency in Berlin. Interestingly, the artist titled this seminal video artifact as Black Mirror in 2010 and exhibited the work in Downtown LA in 2011 predating the popular sci-fi/futurist televisual series).

Works from the collection will tokenized as ERC-20 coins to built to philanthropic artwork gifting ecosystem: an altruistic artwork backed network, marketplace and exchange.

ABOUT ARTIST

Originally trained as a painter, US born and based artist Jakob LeBaron Dwight was drawn to digital art and software as an opportunity to explore the transformative impact of digital media on painting and the painterly perspective. Inspired by the opiated, meditative quality of the screen-based televisual space, the artist saw the exploration of the illuminated image as significant to contemporary sensory culture.

The artist seeks the transformative potential of light and space by employing multiple media including painting, digital photography, drawing, collage, smart tv streaming, and the dome master (circular ‘fisheye’ images produced in the process of making fulldome video).

Dwight’s work has been presented internationally, including in Amsterdam, Paris, Los Angeles, Berlin, Seattle, Atlanta, Vienna, Salzburg (Austria) and New York. He has exhibited in Kassel, Germany as part of the Kreuzberg Pavillon at dOCUMENTA (13), 2012. In the same year, he was awarded the Harvestworks New Works residency in New York. In 2010, Dwight was invited to attend GlogauAIR artists’ residency in Germany, and in the following year, 2011, he was awarded a United States Artist’s Residency. As part of Aesthetics+Therapeutics Lab, a collectively run platform developed to initiate installations and experiments in immersive art and healing, Dwight has installed a multi-sensory environment at Vortex Immersion Media Dome at LA Center Studios in 2014. He was commissioned by the Seattle Art Museum to create new work for the Disguise: Masks and Global African Art exhibition at UCLA’s Fowler Museum, which traveled to the Brooklyn Museum, New York in April 2016.
