MORE LIGHT: Media Art from Atlanta
March 31- April 7, 2016
The opening reception will be held on March 31st from 8pm – midnight.
MORE LIGHT features work by 15 Atlanta artists whose work engages the materiality of the moving image. Manipulating light and time via data, codec, algorithm, celluloid, and videotape, these artists offer meditations on the material nature of process in media art. From light boxes to 16mm projection, from video games to site-specific installation, the works on view experiment with the moving image as sculptural, painterly, and performative technologies. The exhibition will span all of Eyedrum’s spaces, including the music room, the gallery, and the rooftop.
Pioneering video artist Dara Birnbaum will also be contributing a newly-digitized, two-channel documentation of her now-lost Rio Videowall (1989), commissioned for the Rio Mall, once located at the corner of Piedmont and North Avenue. The Videowall was the first public artwork of its kind in the United States, combining an unedited live-stream from CNN, surveillance footage of mall patrons, and landscape photographs of the site before the mall was built.
Participating artists include:
Jay Bolter and Maria Engberg
