Strata of Data: Digging Through A Dozen Years On Line
Salon Femmes Br@nchées #61 :: ART.chives : art, archives, & databases
Thurs., Feb. 16, 2006
5pm-7pm, Studio XX
|Show-And-Tell was my favorite subject in grade school. I especially loved the unprepared kids who took whatever they had in their knapsack - like an apple, or a hairbrush - and made a really great show out of it. In University I worked in the Visual Arts Slide Library -170,000 tiny pictures of art, and my job was to find and file them. Heaven! So, as you can imagine, I got pretty excited when Studio XX in Montreal invited me to give a presentation at:
Salon Femmes Br@nchées #61 :: ART.chives : art, archives, & databases.
"In this era of sampling and access to « public » information archives increasingly represent a source of artistic material. Studio XX invites you to a « 5 à 7 » for informal discussions with artists whose work makes diverse artistic use of archives and databases… Featuring presentations from: Aesha Hameed, J. R. Carpenter & Projet Matricules."
If you can't make it on Thursday, that's okay. You can dig through my data any time, right here on: http://Luckysoap.com
