Premiering today: trans_actions

Friday. 16 September 2011. 16:00 UTC
Our new collaboration with Robert Gerard Piertrusko and Bernd Lintermann premieres today at the opening reception for The Global Contemporary: Art Worlds After 1989 in Karlsruhe, Germany. trans_actions is a panoramic data visualization that illustrates the dramatic increase in the number of biennales of contemporary art and the rapid expansion of the art market following the end of the cold war. Visitors enter a large panoramic projection room bathed in animated data representing artists, curators, biennales, and market fluctuations. (Panoramic video projection, 8192 × 1024 at 25 fps. Approximate running time twenty-five minutes.) Click here to view the trans_actions project page.

Advice to Young Makers

Friday. 15 July 2011. 12:00 UTC
Hey everyone. Last night I gave a small talk called Advice to Young Makers at the Space Between exhibition here in London. Thanks to everyone who crammed into that little room to sit on desks for half an hour. —Stewart

The Space Between exhibition

Thursday. 07 July 2011. 09:30 UTC
Next Tuesday the London College of Communication (Design for Interaction and Moving Image BA students) and Nexus Interactive Arts will open their collaborative exhibition titled The Space Between. Stewdio’s own Browser Pong will be among the exhibited works. Look for it on the ground floor.

Please come to the opening party (open to all) on the evening of Thursday, 14 July, 18:00–23:00. In addition to drinks there will be some short talks: At 7:00pm Chris O’Reilly will discuss Nexus. Next up, at 7:40pm Stewart will deliver a quick talk titled “Advice to Young Makers” for the exhibiting graduates—but it applies just as well to those of us who’ve put a few years between ourselves and uni. Finally at 8:35pm Johnny Kelly and Matthew Cooper will share their I am not an artist project.

The exhibition’s peculiar venue is a disused 1980’s office building that’s just a walk from the Canary Wharf tube station: Create House, 2-4 Heron Quays, London E14 4JB. See Transport for London for help getting there.



Yale Graphic Design presents 'Catalog'

Tuesday. 19 April 2011. 10:00 UTC
It’s spring. And that means design thesis shows. Below is the invite text for the Yale School of Art 2011 Graphic Design MFA show. http://yalegraphicdesign.info/.
As both noun and verb, book and exhibition, CATALOG recasts the deconstructed components of finished design projects as new work. The result is an exhibition that is an exploded book, and a book that is a collapsed exhibition.

CATALOG represents the work of Yale School of Art MFA candidates Lauren Adolfsen, Juan Astasio Soriano, Keri Bronk, Benjamin Critton, Lauren Francescone, Brendan Griffiths, Bona Han, Sara Hartman, Hank h. Huang, Zeynab Izadyar, Zakary Jensen, Zachary Klauck, Michael Mikulec, Mylinh Trieu Nguyen, Lindsay Nordell, Ji−Eun Rim, Sally Thurer, and Brian Watterson.

CATALOG will show from May 9−15, 2011 in the Green Hall Gallery of the School of Art, located at 1156 Chapel Street in New Haven, Connecticut. The Gallery is open daily, 10AM−6PM. A closing reception will be held from 6−9PM on May 14.

See you there,
YALE G.D. MFA 2011
