Meet the Artist: Anthony Antonellis, Art of and About the Internet Fall2014news_p10rev2 2

http://www.netartnet.net

Thursday, September 25, 2014

7 pm

Anthony Antonellis’s output is often classified as post-internet art. “net art and post-internet art deal

with authorship, usership, and originality. i view originality as a cumulative process, each person adding

their own contribution to a snowball that existed before them and will continue to exist after. As recently as ten years ago the internet could be viewed as a separate and distinct online space; today we’re approaching a ubiquitous internet that permeates our everyday objects and activities. net art, having once been distinct, is now crossing into physical space and colliding with traditional fine art disciplines.”

Antonellis has created netartnet.net , an onlinegallery listing and directory with archives of current and

past exhibitions. he has been featured in BLoUin ArTinFo, The Creators Project, and Interview Magazine as well as news outlets Wired, CneT,

discovery, The Atlantic, and BBC World service. he has a BFA in painting from Savannah College of Art and design, and an MFA in new artistic strategies from Bauhaus University. anthonyantonellis.com This event is open to the public and all enrolled students, but reservations is required.

The Non-Facial Recognition Project

March 4 – April 5, 2014

Gallery Opening March 4, 5:30 – 7 pm

Artist’s Gallery Talk at 6:30 pm

Today’s facial recognition technology is making strides in distinguishing, literally, a face in the crowd. Its algorithms are built into many sites and apps, proving to be a helpful tool in managing images of friends and family. However, it also raises questions about trust, identity and intrusion, for example, when our own images appear without our permission on someone else’s Facebook page.

Artist Carla Gannis explores these issues in The Non-Facial Recognition Project, her experiment in “facial recognition subversion.” Gannis asked her Twitter network to send her their profile photos with the expressed purpose of “scrambling” the images and in effect making new identities unrecognizable to either the donors or to the technology. Through this project, participants place their likenesses and their identities in her hands, much like the trust we place every day in the technology itself. — Katarina Wong, Independent Curator

Introductory Talk by Festival Curator Liena Vayzman

Join us for a talk by Liena Vayzman and the screening of work from the Crystal Palace Experimental Film and Video Festival. This is a cutting edge film and video art presentation organized on the theme of the crystalline. This program will introduce audiences to up and coming and established avant-garde film and video artists. The crystal-themed, crystallizing, and multi-faceted video art and experimental films in this festival take as points of departure the cultural, scientific, spiritual, and mathematical associations of crystals, gems, and glass. Crystal balls and handmade prisms, shamanic journeys and Indian salt mines, psychedelic Crystal Light drink mix and Victorian animation, mirrors on 16mm and windows on HD — and even crystals grown on a celluloid filmstrip—all glimmer on our magic screen.

http://crystalpalaceexperimentalfilmfest.wordpress.com

The site for the first festival is originated at ArtSpace New Haven.

This event is open to the public and all enrolled students, but registration is required. Please email us at peekskill@sunywcc.edu.
