1. Artspeak Incinerator Project, commission for (un)SCENE Art Show, NYC, March 2015


    from Bill Claps / Added

    The Artspeak Incinerator Project is an interactive video installation created by artist Bill Claps. This video documents the Artspeak Incinerator in action at the MOMA, Guggenheim, Whitney, New Museum, ARTFORUM, Gagosian Gallery, and other locations. During Armory Arts Week Claps utilized crowdsourcing and a technology interface connected to Twitter to source examples of artspeak from various art fairs, publications, and institutions throughout New York City. The artspeak was translated into Morse code (representing the art world's distinct coded language) and digitally incinerated while being projecting onto the facades of art institutions throughout the city, releasing it into the atmosphere in a purified state.

    • Daniel Gordon & Ruby Sky Stiler Take Baby Steps | ART21 "New York Close Up"

      What's the art of balancing work and family? From their home in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn, married artists Daniel Gordon and Ruby Sky Stiler candidly discuss the complex professional and personal dynamics of bringing a baby into their already busy lives. Gordon’s and Stiler’s studios are a study in contrasts. Gordon’s studio in DUMBO is overflowing with color and materials, the floor strewn with paper scraps from which he creates elaborate still lifes to photograph. Stiler’s studio in Gownaus is more orderly, her work table a puzzle of Styrofoam shards from which she constructs sculptures and casts elegant bas-reliefs referencing antiquity. Gordon and Stiler met in graduate school and, like many hard-working professionals in their thirties, the decision to have a baby was a difficult leap into the unknown. For Stiler, the transition from taking care of baby Gus to working in the studio was trying: feelings of satisfaction at going back to work hit up against feelings of guilt at not being at home with her newborn. For Gordon, life after the baby meant learning how to maximize his studio time within a set 9-to-5 schedule, while home became an unexpected release from the burdens of art. "Now having Gus, it's such a pleasure and a relief to have some other thing that's very important that pulls you away from all that stuff and pulls you away from your head," says Gordon. "You can't obsess and take care of Gus. You have to obsess about Gus, and then you can obsess about the other stuff." Featuring work by Gordon included in the exhibition "Screen Selections and Still Lifes" (2014) at Wallspace, and work by Stiler included in the exhibition "Circumstance" (2015) at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. Daniel Gordon (b. 1980, Boston, MA; raised in San Francisco, California, USA) & Ruby Sky Stiler (b. 1979, Portland, Maine) live and work in Brooklyn, New York.

      • Who Run The Art World

        Who runs the art world? Painters, of course! At least that's what BFA Painting major Diona thinks, until one bad critique sends her on a quest to battle for glory against the other, "lower" art disciplines. In this parody of Beyonce's “Who Run the World (Girls),” the lyrics are co-opted and rewritten as a critique of elitism between disciplines in the art market and higher education system, with a humorous spin and trippy visuals.

                When artists create, how much should they consider their audience? And, when viewers approach artwork, is it more important to respond to the piece first or to read the printed artist’s statement? Sheila Wyne, a visual artist from Anchorage, Alaska whose work has been installed permanently in public spaces and in several museum collections, describes how to engage with a piece of art, and how a visually literate community fosters the evolution of art. Karen Saupe hosts.
