Boston Cyberarts 2005 Festival Event

Fri 04/22/2005 - Sun 05/08/2005
Free admission | Wheelchair accessible

"On the Map" features traditional prints and video environments that explore real and virtual maps and places. It is produced by the new 119 Gallery in Lowell. The artists featured have mapped new creative terrains. They are composer and printmaker Richard and Deborah Cornell, new media artist John Craig Freeman and cartographer Steven R Holloway. Due to a construction delay this installation will open at the Evos Arts Institute.

"On the Map" examines the substance of place. Freeman's documentary virtual reality consists of projected environments that lead the user from global satellite perspectives to scenes that unfold on the ground. His series "Imaging Place" uses panoramic photography and digital video in a non-linear, narrative fashion. Freeman's goal is to document sites of cultural significance that are undergoing substantial changes. The Cornells' immersive sojourn, "Linea Australis," is a collaboration with the Scientific Computing and Visualization group of the Office of Information Technology at Boston University. It's forms and sounds were inspired by an expedition off the coast of Western Australia. Holloway's hand-pulled, limited edition maps and prints, journals, notes and related satellite imagery are on view in the gallery.

"One Pixel," a "performance map" by Holloway and Cyberarts public event, will take place in the Back Bay Fens in collaboration with the Boston Arts Academy, Photographic Resource Center at Boston University, The Royal Jelly Collective and other organizations and volunteers.
