Signals from the Electronic Cloud
Presented in collaboration with the Institute of Electronic Arts (IEA) at Alfred University
On View Friday, January 25–Sunday, April 7, 2002
This exhibition focused on works from the Institute of Electronic Arts (IEA) at Alfred University. It included video projections, digital prints and interactive computer and sound art by faculty members and those who participated in the institute’s highly acclaimed artist-in-residence program. In addition, space was dedicated to historical objects significant to the development of the IEA and electronic media. Participants included founding members Peer Bode, E. Jessie Shefrin and Joe Scheer, who began creating and presenting art on Amiga computers in 1986. The program grew significantly and enabled 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. An electronic “catalog” was available via the Burchfield Penney website. Funding came from an anonymous donor, Boynton Studio and the New York State Council on the Arts. Media sponsorship was provided by WBFO 88.7.
