Participant, Inc., 95 Rivington St., NYC
free103point9 and Rhizome are pleased to present Surge Live, a reception to celebrate their collaborative online exhibition Surge which explores aesthetics involved in wireless transmission. Surge includes works by artists 31 Down, Abe Linkoln and Marisa Olson, Angel Nevarez and Alex Rivera, NYSAE (New York Society for Acoustic Ecology), Jim Punk, and Leslie Sharpe. All of their projects employ new media tools to both conceptually and formally address different possibilities for transmission art online. Some consider the nature of signals as they move through the ether; others appropriate forms of wireless transmission, such as the military’s aerial ‘drone’ or the programming format AsCii, to propose new kinds of digital communication.
At this one-night event and reception, all of the projects will be on view and Angel Nevarez, 31 Down and NYSAE (New York Society for Acoustic Ecology) will give brief presentations on their pieces (from 7-9pm).
