Live Stage: New York Electronic Art Festival [us NYC]

harv.jpgZachery Leiberman / Lesley Flanigan / Brenden Fernandes :: Friday, October 2, 2009, 7:00 p.m. :: at Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center, 596 Broadway #602. New York City (at Houston St) :: Subway: F/V Broadway/Lafayette, 6 Bleecker, W/R Prince :: Free

As part of the New York Electronic Art Festival 2009, a month-long series of concerts, workshops, and exhibitions centered on the cutting-edge work being done at the intersection of art and technology, Harvestworks will present the first in a series of New Project Demos on Friday, October 2nd with presentations by new media artists Zachary Leiberman, Lesley Flanigan and Brendan Fernandes.

Zachary Lieberman will present recent and on-going works developed in the last year, including an eye tracker for a paralyzed graffiti writer who has ALS, a performance on the facade of a building, tools for new forms of magic, a 3d drawing tool, and the openframeworks toolkit, a framework for creative coding in c++. In addition, there will be presentation of an upcoming work the artist is developing in collaboration with Taeyoon Choi.

Lesley Flanigan will share her work with custom-built Speaker Feedback Instruments, addressing the physicality of sound, amplification as a source of sound in and of itself, and the relationships between noise, speakers, and voice.

Brendan Fernandes investigates the concept of authenticity, as an ideological construct that both dominant and subordinatecultures use to their own ends. It is a word that shapes cultural experience, and thus also shapes concepts and formation of identity. He uses the Safari-as-authentic-African-experience to provide an evocative metaphor for the inscription of culture onto his own sense of identities. In his lecture at Harvestworks he will discuss his practice and the new work that he created in his residency.

Rate of Change exhibits the wide range of electronic art and it’s transition from the 20th to the 21st Century.
