Hosted by Rhizome 2009-2013, this map identifies organizations, networks, and related links throughout NYS and beyond, that offer a variety of media arts services and information. Coming soon, in 2014, Wave Farm will manage a significant overhaul of The NYS Media Arts Map. A vital connecting point for cultural organizations and the general public interested in electronic art, media, and film statewide, the new Map will dynamically profile organizations and their public programs. Online discussion and networking opportunities will facilitate communication and collaboration, while virtual tours will provide the general public with new information and access.
To ensure your organization will be included in the new Map, please contact:
Telephone Rewired is an audiovisual installation that probes and modulates human consciousness by rhythmically entraining neuronal oscillations in the brain to impact cognition. The installation stimulates the viewer’s endogenous brain waveforms into beta (focused attention), theta (deep relaxation), and alpha (calm awareness). After viewers don an electroencephalography (EEG) monitor, their brain rhythms synchronize into a neurofeedback loop and they enter the era of augmented cognition.

New screen-based sign systems and electric surfaces are re-shaping urban environments and becoming the devices through which we frame our experiences. ELECTRIC SIGNS (2013) directed by Alice Arnold explores this new screen culture as it unfolds in the global city. The conversation with the director following the screening will address the notion of spectacle and perspectives on future critical engagement with urban screens. Part of the project Urban Media Aesthetics curated by Tanya Toft.
Note: We usually accept late signups a few days after the official beginning of the course, so don’t hesitate to ask if you’re interested. This intensive. three-week ONLINE course introduces students to the field of computer vision and its use in art installation and interactivity. Students will learn how to create programs in Processing which track objects, colors, bodies, and faces, and how to use that stream of data to add dynamics to our applications.
Anthony Marasco, composer and winner of the 2013 UnCaged Toy Piano Festival will be performing a series of new and improvised pieces with guitarist Michael Greinke. Drawing from unique sound sources such as homemade acoustic instruments, simple circuit-synthesizers and radical guitar preparations, the duo focuses on a communal approach to building sonic landscapes. Come see the man of the hour perform some of his own homemade electronics!
Musical drones have been used as a device in indigenous cultures to induce hypnogogic trances for centuries. More recently, pulses, or beating tones, created through closely tuned drones have been proven through scientific testing to entrain brainwaves into desirable meditative states. Composer David First and Kate Henderson, licensed acupuncturist and drummer, have successfully combined these therapies to facilitate a healing ‘window’.
