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
Opened May 8, 2021 – Closed August 09, 2021
About the Harvestworks Art and Technology Program
on Governors Island
The Art and Technology Program on Governors Island is centered on art works created at the intersection of art and technology. It includes artists open studios, exhibitions of digital media art, public workshops and performances in our educational research facility in Nolan Park. Our goal is to provide exhibition opportunities to electronic media artists and also to educate the public about how artists use new and emerging technology for artistic expression.
Funded by mediaTheFoundation Inc., the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
In addition to traditional payment methods – Credit/Debit Card, Paypal –Cryptocurrency purchases of artworks, both physical and digital can be made through use of a variety of tokens and multichain smart contract “flavors” – as ERC20 (Pre-NFT) and mintable ERC721 (NFT’s). For NFT’s you can browse our collection on OPENSEA.
We will go further into our sales theory but this allows us to offer different kinds of smart contract protocols and options to each artist we work with as well as collectors. Selling artwork this way also allows us to support the use and adoption of cryptocurrencies as a whole while allowing the collector to pay through the coin of their choosing.
All purchases come with a Certificate of Authenticity provided through VERISART that will include each artwork sales’ unique transaction info stored on the blockchain, its transaction address for instance that is publicly accessible through the sites like Etherscan. For added security, each digital work sold will additionally be embedded with our studio metadata and secret watermarks for extra protection of the authenticity works sold and collectors.
More information about the theory behind our Sales Structure coming soon.
