Submersible Logo Submersible
by Yotam Mann and Niv Bavarsky
with funds from the Jerome Foundation

You are at a helm of a submarine navigating the depths of the ocean. At each strata, you see and hear different organisms. In the sunny epipelagic zone, watch the fast and massive tuna swim by in schools. Or catch a glimpse of the rare sea pig in the darkness of the abyssopelagic. Each of these organisms contributes a spatialized motif to the evolving soundscape. [Needs Chrome 21+ or Safari 6+ and Speakers/Headphones]
Mark-It Logo MARK-IT
by Esmeralda Kosmatopoulos
with funds from the Jerome Foundation

MARK-IT is an App-based, participatory, public art project in New York City. From May 1 to June 30, participants will be able to download the app to their phones and select a color; their movements through the five boroughs will then generate an organic matrix of lines drawn on a virtual white canvas at the scale of the city. The living, breathing artwork will be visible online in real-time. As co-creators of the artwork, participants will receive a numbered edition of the final drawing. [Needs free Google Play APP or iPhone APP (coming soon) ]
Nothing You Have Done Deserves Such Praise Logo Nothing You Have Done Deserves Such Praise
by Jason Nelson
with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts

Nothing You Have Done Deserves Such Praise is an art/ poetry/ adventuring game, a playland for exploring our ever-present desire for constant and over-blown rewards. Our worlds (digital and breathing) are filled with needless and unearned praise, we are built to love exploding trophies for fifth place. This art/poetry game satisfies your compliment addiction by celebrating your walking/jumping/falling through strange and wondrous anatomical lands. [Needs speakers/headphones]

iSkyTV Logo iSkyTV
by the Institute for Infinitely Small Things
with Sophia Brueckner

with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts

iSkyTV is a networked art project that detects the user's location and animates the Google Street View sky above their heads. The project is a reimagining of Sky TV – Yoko Ono's famed video work from 1966 – that brought the outside space inside the gallery. In contrast, iSkyTV brings the interior space of the database outside and invites viewers to reflect on a world in which our natural resources and landscapes have been digitized, databased, copyrighted and archived.

Constellation Over Playas Logo Constellations Over Playas
by Joseph Moore and Stephanie Vella
with funds from the Jerome Foundation

Since 2003 the United States has enacted simulated terrorist attacks against the abandoned mining town, Playas, New Mexico. Constellations Over Playas proposes that we look at this place as an imaginary stage for the dramatization and repetition of collective traumas, a stage where the recreation of the past is used to control the future. Constellations generates iterations of associative networks pulled from the source material the artists have accumulated on their journeys through the area, providing an ephemeral travelogue through the colonial, material, military, imaginary, and cinematic trails that intersect with their investigations of Playas.

WoodEar at Pace WoodEar WoodEar
by Peter Traub with Jennifer Lauren Smith
with public funds from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs

April 16-May 3, 2013
Opening Reception: April 16; 5:00 - 7:00 pm
Pace Digital Gallery, NYC


Commissioned specifically for Pace Digital Gallery WoodEar, the installation, expands into the gallery the software that launched on Turbulence in 2012. The work attempts to merge the dynamic qualities of the biological network of a tree — roots gathering water and nutrients; leaves using sunlight to produce food; and phloem and xylem moving water and nutrients across the structure — with the digital network of the Internet. A series of sensors attached to the tree stream data on the state of its environment — light, temperature, air pressure, and wind. This live data, merged with images and recordings of the tree's immediate surroundings, is made audible and visible in the gallery.
