Up Next: November 18th, W. Benjamin Bray

Ocean circulation and the Arctic comprise a thermal and geopolitical vortex in the context of global climate change. Since 2010, W. Benjamin Bray has spent an inordinate amount of time exploring his relationship to these vast physical spaces, and also their relationship to distant communities, through traveling, research, and artwork — a Situationist approach involving glass, images, maps and video.

When: Wednesday, Nov. 18th, 7:30pm
Where: 9 Myrtle St., Jamaica Plain, MA
Presenter: W. Benjamin Bray
Free event
RSVP to info@atne.org or on our Facebook event. Space is limited.

Up Now at the Boston Harbor Islands Welcome Center (between State St. & Atlantic Ave.) is Waves on Sea and Land, a generative art installation by Mark J. Stock

Waves on Land and Sea is a real-time artwork which uses live wind data from the Harbor Islands and techniques from computational physics to recreate two essential wind-driven motions of the islands. The Harbor Islands are always in flux; wind and tides scour and deposit sand and sediment, shorelines move, while grasses and wildlife adapt to their dynamic environment. Waves on Sea and Land reflects these timeless yet ephemeral forces with a never-ending, never- repeating simulation of two patterns of motion etched into the memories of the islands’ visitors.

 ***Due to the Thanksgiving Holiday, the Boston Cyberarts Gallery will be closed on Friday and Saturday. We will reopen this Sunday for our regular gallery hours, 12-6pm.


Katherine Behar

November 7th – December 20th 2015

Responding to digital culture’s intense escalation of productivity, Behar’s work wavers between poetry and parody. Eliciting sympathy for the devices we exploit, she suggests that we ourselves are becoming increasingly device-like. We are ensnared in compulsory productivity, whether “working” in the traditional sense for our own gain, or generating value for distant corporations each time we click “like.” Combining machine-made, handmade, and organic forms, E-Waste offers a physical parallel to the excesses of big data, highlighting the counterpart surplus of consumer media artifacts, and drawing attention to its environmental impact.
