Media Study artists featured in exhibition

Published April 25, 2013

 “Tempus Fugit,” an exhibition featuring the work of past and current faculty and students from the Department of Media Study, will open with a reception from 7-11 p.m. May 3 on the third floor of Hi-Temp Fabrication, 79 Perry St, Buffalo.

The exhibition will run through May 15.

“Tempus Fugit” is the inaugural exhibition of a 10-year series linking past and present members of the Department of Media Study (DMS), according to Laura Curry, adjunct instructor and graduate student in media study, and an organizer of the event.

“Simultaneously a long exposure and time-lapse experiment, the project captures the locus of DMS,” says Curry, who also is an exhibiting artist. “This exhibition series frames the diverse work coming out of DMS by referencing the department’s history and linking it to the current generation of media artists.”

The art in the exhibit, Curry says, “engages with an expanded sensorium—sense beyond the visual”—and features a variety of media, including video, film, performance, games, sound art, interactive media, robotics and installation.

Participants include current faculty members Josephine Anstey (video, gaming, virtual reality), Marc Böhlen (visual data), Tony Conrad (video, sound, performance) and Dave Pape (robotics, virtual reality), and former faculty member Peter Weibel (1984-89, conceptual art, performance, experimental film, video art, computer art, media art and theory).

Among the other exhibitors are experimental filmmaker Matt McCormick; Fulbright scholars Eliseo Ortiz and Angelica Piedrahita Delgado; interdisciplinary artists Kathy High, Orkan Telhan, Jennifer Gradecki and Derek Curry; sound artist Adam McFillin; performers Laura Curry and Sean Feiner; game designer Devin Wilson; installation artist Tra Bouscaren; sculptor Liz Lessner; and media artists Nima Vakili, Jordan Dalton and Paul Sargent.

Feiner and Wilson will give performances at the opening reception.
