Freepoint Hotel

Boston Cyberarts is pleased to have curated new digital art for the Freepoint Hotel, a boutique hotel in Cambridge. The Freepoint commissioned two one hour long digital animations to be projected daily for two years starting in April 2017 by Boston artists Dennis H. Miller and Mark J. Stock in it’s new lounge, the Freepoint Kitchen & Cocktails by Matthew Gaudet. The Freepoint and Boston Cyberarts were introduced by the Cambridge Arts Council who is programming other local art throughout the hotel. The hotel is located at 220 Alewife Brook Pkwy, near the Fresh Pond Reservoir.

Analect by Dennis H. Miller is a colorful symphonic exploration of shapes weaving in and out of each other. Mark J. Stock’s fluid | plastic is a softer mediation on f dynamic fluids wherein words rise up through the liquid plastic goo only to sink back down.

About the Artists

Dennis Miller received his Doctorate in Music Composition from Columbia University and is a Full Professor Emeritus from Northeastern University in Boston, from which he retired in 2018 after 37 years of teaching. His mixed media works, which illustrate principles drawn from music composition applied to the visual domain, have been presented at numerous venues throughout the world, most recently the London Experimental Film Festival, the Hong Kong Arthouse Film Festival, the Punta y Raya Festival (Karlsruhe, Germany), the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival, the Festival 2 Visages Des Musique Électroacoustiques (Brussels), the Free Spirit Film Festival (Himachal Pradesh, India) and the Largo Film Awards screening (Lahksa, Tibet). Exhibits of his 3D still images have been held at the Boston Computer Museum and the Biannual Conference on Art and Technology, and are published in Sonic Graphics: Seeing Sound (Rizzoli Books) and Art of the Digital Age (Thames and Hudson).

Mark J. Stock is an artist, scientist, and programmer who creates still and moving images and objects combining elements of nature, physics, chaos, computation, and algorithm. Mark eschews the ‘black box’ nature of commercial software—his work is exclusively created with scientifically-accurate research software, mostly of his own design. He has been showing work since 2000 and has been in over 90 curated and juried exhibitions since 2001, including Ars Electronica, ASPECT Magazine, and seven SIGGRAPH Art Galleries. He has spoken at numerous scientific, graphics, and art conferences and workshops, and has published papers in a variety of fields. Mark completed his PhD in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan in 2006 and works out of his studio in Boston, Massachusetts. He is represented in California by SENSE Fine Art.
