David Crawford (1970-2009), R.I.P.

It is with heartfelt regret and deep sadness that we convey the news of David Crawford’s passing. Helen met David in New York city in 1997. Turbulence.org went on to commission and spotlight many of his works, including Here and Now (1998), National Velvet (2000), Dance to the Radio (2002), Stop Motion Studies – Tokyo (2003), and Algorithmic Montage 2: A Walk With David Bohm (2007).

David recently received a PhD in Digital Representation from the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts at Göteborg University, Sweden. He studied film, video, and new media at the Massachusetts College of Art and received a BFA in 1997.

In 2000, his Light of Speed project was a finalist for the SFMOMA Webby Prize for Excellence in Online Art. In 2003, Crawford’s Stop Motion Studies project received an Artport Gate Page Commission from the Whitney Museum of American Art, an Award of Distinction in the Net Vision category at the Prix Ars Electronica, and became part of the public collection of the Moderna Museet in Stockholm (SMS – Series 6). In 2004, he received an MSc from Chalmers University of Technology and taught at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. David’s artwork has been featured by the Guardian and Leonardo. His writing has been published by Princeton Architectural Press and SpringerWienNewYork.

    I am deeply impressed by David Crawford’s Writing “Algorithmic Montage – A Frame by Frame Approach to Experimental Documentary”.

    I would like to diskuss the paper in more detail with a number of interested people over the internet. To allow for web 2.0 -like shared annotations and detailled comments and discussions on the text (e.g.via Diigo etc.), it would be convenient to have the text available in form of a blog.

    Can anyone advise me how I might obtain permission for such a project from the current copyright owner?

    Thanks!

    Hi Peter,

    David’s family is still trying to figure this out, as David didn’t state his wishes. I just happened to have a copy of the paper because David gave it to me several years ago. I made it available on this site because I thought people who know his work would be interested to know that he was a talented writer as well.

    No one has asked me to take it down. I think David’s family wants to share his work and insure that it lives on. I’m guessing that it would be okay to make a blog, but since we’re thinking about creating a retrospective exhibition on http://turbulence.org, I’m curious to know whether we could host the blog as part of the exhibition?

    Warm Regards,
    Jo

    Hello Jo,

    this sounds great!
    The exhibition you are planning will provide rich resources for anyone interested in bringing together people, art, and electrons…

    So, why don’t I just go ahead and put together a wordpress-blog (unpublished), and send the .sql and additional files to you, so you can publish it within the framework of your exhibition whenever you think it appropriate.

    I’ll be very curious to see what will happen from there…

    Thanks for your support!
