We Have DARPA Funding, Get in the Van

West Hall Gallery, Room 111

May 6, 2007 5:30 PM - 9:30 PM

As spring emerges, erupting in color, it brings with it the work of winter.  "We Have DARPA Funding, Get in the Van," on Sunday, May 6th, will showcase new work by MFA candidates at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York.  The show is a public exhibition of both works in progress and finished pieces, with the artists themselves available to discuss their work. Some of the work will be formally installed, performed or screened; other pieces will be displayed in the artists' studios. Their work covers diverse conceptual and aesthetic terrain and manifests through multiple mediums including sound, video, performance and installation.   The event is FREE and open to the public.

Noah Marchal's "The Commodity of Breath," a bio-robotic bonsai, interprets CO2 levels from human breathing.  Dara Greenwald's video "Strategic Cyber Defense," takes an intricate look at just what DARPA funding is.  Soyo Lee's work examines movement.  Ethan Bach asks us to look beyond our 'self' with an interactive video installation.  There will be electro acoustic recordings from Charles Veasey and a collection of field recordings, guitar, and composition from Jefferson Pitcher titled "All the Lights in Town Went Dim."  Live performances by Alex Chechille, Mike Bullock and Ryder Cooley.  Also featured is a video installation from Jim Finn and gallery work by Bart Woodstrup.  Stills of work are available for publication.
