New Media Artspace at Baruch College Presents exonemo: The Life-Cycle of Interfaces

Ongoing through Friday, May 4

Location: New Media Artspace at Baruch College, Library and Information Building, 151 E. 25th Street, New York, NY 10010

For The Life-Cycle of Interfaces exhibition, the artists will exhibit a suite of four works:

Exonemo has been organizing Internet Yami-Ichi (Internet black market), a "backstreet of the internet." Artists and creators are invited to occupy a flea-market styled exhibition space, and sell items that are interesting and unique to the internet.

DesktopBAM (2010) is a performance piece entailing programmatically controlling a mouse cursor to DJ on a desktop environment. It's a homage to turntablism, born from using turntables in unconventional ways.

DanmatsuMouse (2007) humors with the idea of an electronic interface as an object of spirituality.

Fireplace (2014) is a video piece presenting scenes of burning optical mice and keyboards as tinder fed into a fireplace. In the old days of "hearth and home," the fireplace was the center of the living room and family gathering.


Ongoing through Friday, May 18, 2018

Location: 5 Bryant Park, 1065 Sixth Avenue between 40th and 41st Streets

The exhibition is curated by Hunter College Professor Carrie Moyer in collaboration with José Gonzalez of Gonzalez Architects for Equity Office. The four current Hunter College MFA students are Talia Levitt, Madhini Nirmal, Leonard Reibstein, and Andy Van Dinh.
