Join the museum for an open reception of “Virtual Kinetics, and the Art of the Image” by David Gordon on April 23, 2010 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM. This new exhibit at the museum asserts that technology can be used to both create beauty and stimulate a sense of wonder. By combining historical and new media technologies, artist Dave Gordon achieves effects which are at once magical, beautiful and understandable.
Much of the work presented in “Virtual Kinetics, and the Art of the Image” represents a peculiar decades-long collaboration between two gentlemen from different centuries, multimedia artist and educator Dave Gordon and Victorian inventor and photographer Eadweard Muybridge. Gordon continues the artistic work of “the father of film” by exploiting cutting edge technologies such as micro controllers and Hall-effect sensors to make Muybridge’s motion studies interactive in a three dimensional environment. Gordon presents work which lays bare the technology that all digital Media uses to display images and mimic continuous motion. While beautiful and educational the work is often provocative challenging both Victorian and contemporary norms.
Light refreshments will be served.
