Live Stage: AudioVisual: A New Generation [NYC]

olenhsu.jpgThe New York Electronic Art Festival (NEAF): Artist Talks: Rashaad Newsome, Olen Hsu, and Phoenix Perry :: WHEN: Saturday, May 26, 4 – 6 pm :: WHERE: LMCC Swing Space at 38 Park Row :: FREE

NYEAF’s premiere event, AudioVisual: A New Generation of Installation Artists, focuses on eight digital artists who explore the poetics of sound and image/light through electronic media. Artists Rashaad Newsome, Olen Hsu, and Phoenix Perry will talk about the ideas and technical processes informing their works on view in NYEAF’s premiere event, Audio/Visual: A New Generation of Installation Artists. This is a unique opportunity to get in-depth insights into the ground-breaking work of three prominent young digital artists.

Rashaad Newsome’s The Conductor is a 2:31 min. digital video loop made up of footage from various hip-hop videos, digitally enhanced and re-edited to track the motion of the hands of the artists. The audio consists of sounds extracted from top 10 hip-hop songs and reassembled to make the quintessential hip-hop track. The track is then woven in and out of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana. Rashaad Newsome studied film and video in New York where he currently lives. His work integrates photography, sound, performance, and video to explore and question prevailing media representations of black culture in North America.

Olen Hsu’s sculpture and sound installation Drift (II) (2007) charts the prehistory of the digital network, situating itself in the era of the gramophone. Hsu’s delicate apparatus emits a sound composition created with numerical oceanographic data of the past two hundred years. Olen Hsu constructs installations in porcelain, paper and algorithmically composed sound, converging new media, tactile forms, and acoustic musical instruments. Hsu holds degrees in music, art history, ceramics, and sculpture from Yale University, the Kansas City Art Institute, and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Phoenix Perry’s Honey is an interactive game exploring issues of survival and the environment. This powerful game demonstrates even the smallest creatures’ vital importance to their ecosystem as they struggle to survive in a unique, fantasy-world. Phoenix Perry’s creative media include, installation, video, live performance, sculpture, sound, and painting. Her works have been screened at Lincoln Center, NYC, the Santa Fe Art Institute, the Austin Museum of Digital Art, and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. She currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.
