Boston Cyberarts Gallery announces today its opening of We See Each Other All The Time: A Study in Ubiquitous Communication by Dana Moser and Nita Sturiale on April 10, 2014. The installation features the two artist-colleagues as they embark on a month long daily ritual of information exchange using various methods of analog and digital communication. The exhibition’s opening reception is Thursday, April 10, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. at Boston Cyberarts Gallery, 141 Green Street, Jamaica Plain, MA.
“We’re thrilled that Boston Cyberarts Gallery is hosting our show. Dana and I have been colleagues and friends for over 20 years and this is the first time that we’ve collaborated on an artwork,” says Nita Sturiale. “As co-teachers in the Studio for Interrelated Media at MassArt, we’ve witnessed the changing communication methods and attitudes of our students which inspired us to explore our own relationship to each other through the lens of our mediated conversation.”
As their transactions move from Portland, OR to Boston, MA to Agrigento, Italy and Berlin, Germany, Moser and Sturiale recorded a poetic journal of reflections on space, time, friendship, technology and communication. The show is comprised of a combination of work in 2D, audio/video installation, and digital, generative artwork.
Dana Moser adds, “We committed to creating a communication of some sort every day for a month as a way of thinking about not only how the nature of our technologies have changed over the past 2 decades, but also how the technologies that we use every day have changed us.”
