ERYK SALVAGGIO

UPGRADE! BOSTON: ERYK SALVAGGIO -- Join us for a presentation by net artist Eryk Salvaggio followed by a dialogue between Eryk and Brooke A. Knight. WHEN: June 1, 7:00-9:00 p.m. [details]

Called "The Harry Potter of the Digital Avant Garde" by the Dutch Press, Eryk Salvaggio has been creating internet art since he was 17 years old. His work has been compared to "a more human Andy Warhol," and strictly adheres to his own "6 Rules Toward a New Internet Art." This formula has led to articles in the New York Times* as well as mentions in ArtForum, alongside several international exhibitions and talks.

Turbulence commissioned Salvaggio's "American Internet" in 2002, and he curated "Duchamp's Ideal Children's Children: Net.Art's Brat Pack" for Turbulence's Guest Curator series in 2003. He's currently working on "MySpaces," a piece about the projection of self onto social networking sites such as friendster and myspace, and a degree in New Media and Journalism at the University of Maine.

Artist and educator BROOKE A. KNIGHT has been working with digital media for over a dozen years. His current interests include webcams, the landscape, and text in all forms. Knight is Assistant Professor in the Department of Visual and Media Arts at Emerson College, Boston. He received his MFA in photography from CalArts in 1995.
