Update: Lumen 2012

 

Last weekend I participated in LUMEN 2012, a light art festival which took place this year at the Atlantic Salt Co. on Staten Island.  Yes, it is a uniquely Staten Island event and experience, and quite possibly the most diverse and simultaneously cohesive show I take part in.  The crowd ranges from Williamsburg hipsters to Staten Island families, and the art represents every discipline from action painting, performance, video, audio-visual and more abstract light based forms (projections into clouds of smoke!).

My contribution to the event was a simplified version of a project I submitted to BAM’s Public Art Project towards the end of last year.  You can find video documentation of Impact Study No. 1 here.


Transmittal

"Relay" by Max Goldfarb

“free103point9 hosts, “Transmittal,” a transmission arts exhibition of local New York artists and international radio artists, in Catskill, New York this spring. “Transmittal” is curated by Galen Joseph-Hunter, free103point9’s Executive Director and author of “Transmission Arts: Artists and Airwaves” (PAJ Publications: 2011.) Works include video, sound, radio, installation, performance, and work-on-paper. An opening for “Transmittal” will be held Saturday, April 28 from 5-7 p.m., and the exhibition is open from Apr. 27 through June 1 at the Greene County Council on the Arts Gallery at 398 Main St. in Catskill.” – free103point9.org

"Deluge" by Phillip Stearns

I’ll be showing Deluge, a light and sound sculpture consists of 35 hand made modules, each containing a transistor receiver that generates white noise, an amplifier w/ speaker, and 12 LEDs.  Static from a broad spectrum of unused radio frequencies is gently amplified through a small speaker, and visualized by a string of LEDs.  Together the cloud of individual modules create the impression of rain.


Deluge in Progress

Currently wrapping up construction of Deluge. This project will be exhibited as part of the Transmittal group show curated by Galen Joseph-Hunter for Free103Point9 at Greene County Council on the Arts Gallery in Catskill, NY. Opening is April 28th, 2012 at 5-7pm.


No Input Mixer + Digitally Controlled Light + Scanner

Grayson Bagwell recently inspired me to begin working with prepared scanners.  After taking apart an HP F335 all in one printer scanner combo, I got the bright idea to replicate some of my favorite op-art-esque images produced with the Kodak digital cameras in the DCP Series.  The image above was created by scanning a CFL bulb that was being controlled by audio signals generated by mixer feedback.
