DATA DADA Beta Spaces
Saturday 7-10 pm
Sunday 11 am - 7 pm
Data is an attribute of digital identity. Dada expresses the incongruity of the conventional with the anti-conventional. Digital technology allows the user, the viewer and the resource to make claims about the other, as well as itself and themselves.
Daniel Aycock is an artist, curator, editor, living and working in Brooklyn, his work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. -
"In this recent series of work I am considering social movement as an actual physical mechanism."
Katie Hickman born in Youngstown, Ohio is a multimedia artist studying Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts and currently living in Bushwick. -
"We are all objects of desire. Questioning identity through characterization, I present myself always as myself- and as others, while constantly aware of an audience. The videos actualize an awkward sophistication, and the in-between of what is and what could be."
Rebecca Major, born in Budapest Hungary, emigrated to the U.S. at the age of 6, graduated from Pratt Institute with a BFA in painting and is now a video and installation artist. -
"My work develops atmospheres and glimpses into past eras-- specifically in the retelling of women�s histories. I am interested in forming characters, figures & roles through costumes, pose and sets that are the result of deliberate processes, but which retain a playful quality; bringing to mind child's play and the experimentation of assuming characters-- issues of gender and histories can be examined."
Isis Nabut is a video editor as well as a video and animation artist living in New York City, who went to the University of Florida and Hilversum School of Art & Media in the Netherlands. Isis�s artwork speaks about the digital medium itself, specifically the nature of reality versus the planar limitation of the frame and psychological attachment one develops via �suspension of disbelief�. In conjunction with this theme her works are often inspired by cinema, �the gaze�, gender roles and current events.
Eto Otitigbe is a media artist who uses installation and moving image to tell traveling tales, trashy love stories, and captive dream sequences. He creates sensitive spaces equipped with various media that contribute to his narratives. -
"Loss Prevention - a performance installation: Many resources and great efforts are spent on the prevention of loss. The degree of effort is driven by the article of interest e.g.- time, loved ones, heirlooms, consumer goods. The loss prevention agency has been established to prevent the theft, inadvertent loss, or unnecessary expiry of personal articles."
