Photos of 1YPV at NuMu

posted at 16:44 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid/photos

I took some pix of 1 Year Performance Video installed at the New Museum. A little sneak peek for our faithful blog readers :-)

The photos are fairly lame (flash, fish-eyed, yeck), but it gives you an idea of what it looks like installed. You can see the Mac mini mounted to the wall under the 60” screen.

Click the images below for larger images if you are so inclined.

Thanks to everyone at Rhizome and the New Museum, the installation looks great. permanent link to this post

One thing about the debate

posted at 16:44 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid/photos

Is it me, or did Bush seem to keep pausing and waiting for applause? Could he be that out of it?

Also, the media says about Bush that his strength is that he can stay relentlessly “on message.” This is a total, big, steaming pile of bullshit. “Stay on message” means repeats himself over and over because all he has are talking points coached into him by his handlers and he’s run out but needs to fill his time. He had to struggle to fill the tiny amount of allotted time half the time! What a pathetic ass.

And from
Every president gets tucked away into a cocoon to some degree. But President Bush does notoriously few press conferences or serious interviews. His townhall meetings are screened so that only supporters show up. And, of course, he hasn’t debated anyone since almost exactly four years ago.

Frankly, I think it showed. It irked him to have to stand there and be criticized and not be able to repeat his talking points without contradiction.
I had the same impression and loved it. permanent link to this post

Justin Waldstein!

Visit Justin’s web site.

He was the honorable mention, but the 2nd runner up had left, so the title went to him. Unfortunately, we had put the other person’s name on the certificate already. Sorry dude!

Thanks again to Valerie Lamontagne and Brad Todd of MobileGaze for inviting us to participate in the exhibition and inviting us to Montreal to present our work.

Pirated Movie Photos

posted at 13:25 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid/photos

the performers, from top right: tinydiva, Fritz Welch (Pee In My Face With Surgery), Jaime Fennelly (Pee In My Face With Surgery), Taketo Shimada, Naval Cassidy, and Jackmaster Arcangel.

Pirated Movie (MTAA’s pirated screening of Disney’s Pirates of The Caribbean) seems to have gone fairly well. Click on the thumbs above and you can see some photos of the evening.

My one regret is not getting any photos of all the people running out with their hands over their ears during Pee In My Face With Surgery’s set.

In the beginning it was very crowded, but it cleared out as the heat, Pee In My Face With Surgery, and nicotine addictions got the better of people. There were a few hearty souls who stuck it out through the entire night (meaning that they didn’t go and hang around outside the gallery) some of whom I’ll name here: Heather Stephens, Jeff Wyckoff, Dyske Suematsu, Joseph McElroy, and Bogyi Banovitch. Thanks guys! permanent link to this post

The “SUMMEr oF HTML” Tour

posted at 12:41 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid/photos

MTAA’s M.River provided the 8 foot tall HTML letters hand-crafted from plywood that adorned the front entrance to TEAM Gallery for the kick-off of the “SUMMEr oF HTML” tour. The tour includes performances and stuff by EXTREME ANIMALS/8-BIT CONSTRUCTION SET/BEIGE PROGRAMMING ENSEMBLE and PAPERRAD.

T.Whid was tired and sweaty and left early so these photos aren’t of the whole show unfortunately. It was highly entertaining, informative and fun and If I wasn’t so lazy I could have enjoyed the entire thing. I’ll be regretting it for some time I’m sure.

Coney Island July 2003

posted at 11:03 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid/photos

Yes. Coney Island is grimy. Yes. Coney Island is sticky. Yes. Coney Island can be smelly. But Coney Island IS Brooklyn summer! And on July 19, 2003 there were free bands playing courtesy of the Village Voice’s Siren Festival.

Here are some pics. (On a brand new site which will become shortly. I’ll be using it mostly for commercial stuff, but I may move over there too.) permanent link to this post

Net Art NYC April 20, 21, 2003

posted at 14:27 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid/photos

Lots of activity this week in the NYC net art scene.

There are some more things happening this week other than the one’s I’m covering so if anyone wants to leave the times and dates in the comments please feel free. There is an opening for the Digital Salon at the World Financial Center tonight and an opening on Wednesday launching EAI projects by Tony Martin, Torsten Burns, and Darrin Martin (MTAA showed with these guys at the Eyebeam AIR show).

Mouchette’s show at Postmasters was fun. There was a big inflatable environment which contained Mouchette and people cued up for a chance to go inside and talk with (what turned out to be) him. He was a very polite, fairly young frenchman who took our picture after we talked for a few minutes.

Pics of Mouchette event at Postmasters

Jodi’s INSTALL.EXE rocks the house. They managed to fill Eyebeam’s huge space comfortably with the big main space reserved for 4 large projections of what Cory Arcangel dubbed “desktop improvisation”. MTAA had a close relationship to the show as M.River was hired to oversee the construction and installation of the work and ended up working with JOan Heemskerk and DIrk Paesmans on the show.

There are no pics of Joan Heemskerk in my little photo documentation because she was unfortunately not feeling well and was at the opening only a short time.

Here are some photos (I’m a dork and didn’t take any photos of the actual work, just the people). permanent link to this post

Thing Benefit

posted at 14:44 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid/photos

The Thing’s benefit was lots of fun the other night and, yes, we took some pix. The only problem with it was that the place was way to small, it was packed! Wolfgang should have found a bigger place or they should have banned all the non-Thing benefitters from the place.

M.River and I started out our evening by having some drinks at openair bar on St. Mark’s Place in the East Village. We then met Doran Golan at his restaurant, La Casalinga (check out a qtvr), and he treated us to a very good pasta dinner with tasty red wine. Highly reccomended if your visiting NYC.

Cabbed it to The Thing benefit at Good World Bar & Grill. The place was already crawling with thingistas including Wolfgangsta himself, Christiane Paul & John Klima, Ricardo Dominquez & Diane Ludin, and Mark Tribe. Everyone looked like they were having fun supporting The Thing. permanent link to this post

The Upgrade

posted at 11:45 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid/photos

For 3 years now a group of new media artists, curators and hangers-on in NYC have been meeting and discussing online and new media art. This loose group has called their meetings The Upgrade.

The Upgrade started as a casual get-together between Yael Kanarek, Mark Napier, M.River, and T.Whid at the bar 2A in Manhattan’s East Village. Eventually, as the get-togethers grew, we moved over to Two Boots pizza. Finally, to make the meetings more productive, Yael persuaded Eyebeam to begin hosting the events at The Filmmakers Collaborative (another org, like Eyebeam, founded by John Johnson). That’s when the meetings became known as The Upgrade because we were upgrading to a new room with projectors, internet connections and critical discussions as opposed to pizza, beer and gossip. When Eyebeam’s Chelsea warehouse became usable the meetings moved there.

The most recent Upgrade was the three year anniversay and Eyebeam was kind enough to donate a small brunch to accompany the presentation. Here are some photos of the event: permanent link to this post

Cremaster Opening At The Guggenheim

posted at 23:20 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid/photos

So, M.River said he was going to write some captions for the photos we took at the opening but he’s procrastinated it. I’ve written same real lame captions and posted the pics via iPhoto (hey, it’s fast and easy, I don’t care what you think).

Snow Day

Hurray! Snow Day! Well, I had the day off anyway, but it sure did feel like a snow day. NYC had one wild weekend: historic peace demonstrations and now this historic snow fall.

Here are some pics of my street in Brooklyn:
