Culture Shock Marketing (CSM) in partnership with online video sharing site Vimeo®, an operating business of IAC [NASDAQ: IACI], are pleased to present PROJECTiON, a curated series of contemporary moving image digital artworks selected from Vimeo.com for a special project featured at VOLTA NY during Armory Arts Week.
PROJECTiON features bleeding-edge moving image works exhibited in fine art contexts. Ten films by: Scott Pagano – Arev Manoukian – Zeitguised – Kirsten Lepore – Masaki Yokochi – Mike Winkelmann – Hugh McGrory – Glenn Marshall – Rob Seward – J.G. Zimmerman.
‘Digital’ or ‘New Media’ art (Computer graphics, Computer animation, the Internet, Interactive technologies, Generative art, Information art, Video art, Robotics and Bio technologies) is often defined through its opposition to ‘Old Media’ art (traditional painting, sculpture etc).
Curated by CSM, works selected include experimental film, computer animation and visual effects. The PROJECTiON initiative views and presents work that has undergone computer/human interaction processes in direct lineage to its cultural predecessors, showing that an expanded digital toolset can lead to an expansion of formal concerns and impulses that can be traced back throughout the canon of art history. The curated series provides an opportunity for VOLTA NY patrons to experience these moving image fine art works in different contexts and environments. Works will be screened in multiple elevators taking visitors to the show, on the exhibition floor and in shuttle buses.
“We believe that the most relevant art today is being made by people who do not necessarily refer to themselves as artists. They are animators, filmmakers and motion graphics experts who are creating visually stunning, thought-provoking pieces that capture and define the mood of the present. The PROJECTiON initiative is a first step in an ongoing curatorial process to give this artwork the attention it deserves,” said Debra Anderson, CEO and Founder, Culture Shock Marketing (CSM).
