Boston Cyberarts Special Projects, a series of ongoing projects, offer arts exhibitions, music and dance events throughout the year.
We are in our fifteenth call of Art on the Marquee. The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (MCCA) and Boston Cyberarts are issuing the fifteenth call for media art to display on the Marquee at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. We are looking for 30-second videos, animations, or computer-generated motion works that push the creative limits of this 80-foot, seven-screen, three-sided LED sculpture. Eligibility is limited to artists and artist teams who reside in Massachusetts. For more info, visit http://www.artonthemarquee.com/call-for-art/
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.
Boston Cyberarts Gallery presents COLLISION:Stealing from the Real: Simulation and sense making, organized and curated by COLLISIONcollective member Georgina Lewis. COLLISION:Stealing from the Real includes 10 artists from the US and Canada.
How do we make sense of our environment parse it, probe it, and enact change? COLLISION:Stealing from the Real examines the transformative power of play and technology’s place within this act. Increasingly computer-mediated, simulation is how we learn about the world and test scenarios, a way of exploring identity, critiquing societal norms, constructing and reframing history or just plain having fun. Simulation redefines play as a rules-based process that allows artists to mimic reality and push formal, technical, and conceptual boundaries.
Artworks By: W. Benjamin Bray, Rob Gonsalves and Anna Kristina Goransson, Faith Holland, Annette Isham, Erika Lincoln, Sarah Rushford, John Slepian, Mark Stock, and William Tremblay
