Peer Bode, who has been involved with digital technology since its beginnings, is using new technology as a means of looking back on the developments of the medium. Camel Series was exhibited in Signals from the Electronic Cloud, presented January 25-April 7, 2002. Signals focused on recent works from the Institute of Electronic Arts at Alfred University included video projections, digital prints and interactive computer and sound art by faculty members and those who have participated in the Institute’s highly acclaimed artist-in-residence program. In addition, space was dedicated to displaying artifacts and historical objects significant to the development of the IEA and electronic media. Participants included founding members Peer Bode, Jessie Shefrin, and Joe Scheer, who in 1986 began creating and presenting art on Amiga computers. Since then, the program has grown significantly and has allowed artists from around the world to produce work at this unique center for creativity. Also included in the exhibition were Andrew Deutsch, Will Contino, Tetsu Inoue, Woody Vasulka, and internationally renowned artist Ann Hamilton. Lectures, screenings, and performances by several participating artists were presented in conjunction with other related programming. Don Metz, John Opera and Scott Propeack of the Burchfield-Penney Art Center curated the exhibition, which continued in Gallery 2 and the Central Gallery beyond April 7th. Funding for the exhibition came from an anonymous donor, Boynton Studio, and the New York State Council on the Arts. Media sponsorship was from WBFO 88.7.
