Boston Cyberarts 2005 Festival Event


Fri 04/08/2005 - Thu 05/05/2005
Wheelchair accessible


"Land/Mark: Locative Media and Photography" is a group exhibition that features artists who engage photography with location-based media, global technologies, and larger geographical systems. Using the parsed phrase "Land/Mark" as a starting point, this PRC exhibition curated by Leslie K. Brown highlights Boston-area artists Margot Kelley, Brooke Knight, Josh Winer, and the new media, global public art project Yellow Arrow (yellowarrow.net), but also points to various other exhibitions and events related to mapping all over the city.

The artworks in "Land/Mark" are titled by their exact location, either by GPS (Global Positioning System) coordinates or another location-based code and comment upon the idea of landmarks and marking the land. Work in the PRC show includes Margot Kelley's investigation of the GPS game geocaching through color photographs and narrative; Brooke Knight's ground studies near landmarks and minute confluences; and Josh Winer's large format coordinate-titled images of land in flux. Also on display will be a live-feed slideshow from Yellow Arrow's database of arrows placed in the environment, which during the festival will feature only Boston-area submissions.

Fri April 8-Thurs May 5, Tues-Fri 10-6 pm, Thurs 10-8pm, Sat and Sun 12-5pm, Opening reception, Thurs, April 7, 5:30-7:30pm; Gallery conversation, Thurs, April 21, 12pm.
