Check out The Red Shrimp at the 2010 Digit Fest Sponsored by the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance!

“There’s a certain irony of holding a digital festival in a rural town like Narrowsburg where cell phones still receive only spotty reception,” states Tina Spangler of the organizing committee for DIGIT. “But, this quiet atmosphere creates a comfortable environment in which local residents and visiting artists alike can come together to examine the ways digital technology impacts our everyday lives.”

The seventh annual DIGIT digital media exposition kicks off Friday, June 18 from 7–9 p.m. with a double opening reception of Conrad Gleber’s video installation “Four Walls / Four Seasons” at Alliance Gallery and “Alternate Reality” video screenings and installations in Loft Gallery at 37 Main Street in Narrowsburg, NY. Both exhibitions will remain on display through July 10.

DIGIT is proud to host several visiting artists and their innovative works, including Thomas Zummo’s digital art displays revealing brand new technologies such as augmented reality and laser graffiti; Ivan Martinez’s “Running Man” projections from a flatbed truck on Main Street; Mat Rappaport’s video and Morse code over the Delaware River titled “currents,” Owen Mundy’s projected installation “The Consequence of Scale,” and “Beloved River: The Portal Form” by DIGit founder Patrick Carullo.

Narrowsburg Roasters will once again host “Java with the Geniuses” an open and free discussion for anyone to ask technical questions—from how to download a picture to how to start a website—on Saturday, June 19 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. Next door at the Arts Center, a series of workshops will explore topics including Conrad Gleber’s “Using Microsoft’s Photosynth” and Ron Littke’s “Videotoons” animation workshops for kids 3–12 years old.

The “Quick and Gritty” video slam returns, inviting artists of all skill levels to make their own 3-minute digital movie. In what has become a festival favorite event, the short videos are screened on Sunday, June 20 at 12 p.m, at “video slam” at the Tusten Theatre. A jury of judges will award a $500 grand prize.

Sponsored by the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance, DIGIT encourages creative and technical excellence and experimentation among individual artists and small groups working with digital tools. The event is funded in part by a grant from the Electronic Media and Film Program of the New York State Council on the Arts.

GAF IN PERPETUAL ART MACHINE EXHIBIT AT SCOPE, BASEL 2010
Scope Foundation and Perpetual Art Machine presents
A Light at the End of the Tunnel
curated by Lee Wells

A Light at the End of the Tunnel is an epic video art trilogy about the human condition which includes seminal works by 30 international emerging artists.The concept of life, death and rebirth has followed humanity through the ages as the self and the collective whole passes through time, creating a relative chain of events that could be called the history of universal human experience. Its through all of these varying histories, and a perpetual creative avant garde that continue to seek a move vivid understanding of the interconnectedness of life. Our great quest to solve the questions of our age could be exemplified by one of humankind’s greatest achievements at CERN Labs, Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, the worlds largest machine. As the scientists at CERN continue to probe the most fundamental questions of life and the origins of the universe, we seek artists that are asking similar big questions in their creative practice and use their creativity to reveal the world in new and unexpected ways.

Why are we here? What does it all mean? How is it all relative to art in the 21st century?
