Adventures of a Networked Explorer

Location: online

Outline:

Marc Garrett interviews Patrick Lichty Part 1.

`Patrick Lichty is an individual who seems to be like a non-stop engine. A hungry human being, engulfed in a prolific journey of constant exploration, whether it be making artworks, writing, activism, curating, collaborating, researching or teaching; he`s deeply involved and engaged in media arts culture. Since 1990, he has pursued art and writing that explores how we relate to one another through technology and how we relate to it. This includes art, media, and computer technology.

Lichty also works in almost all forms of Digital 3D – Animation, VR, Fabrication, Physical Computing. Translating the work for display through video, animation, live installation, electronics, virtual reality, physical computing, robotics, digital fabrication and imaging. As well as realising virtual works into traditional forms such as plates for print, paintings, expanding the focus of his work in a broader context.

Lichty`s work, concepts and practice do not rest in one place, it crosses over into many areas of creative production. By getting his hands dirty with the medium of technology, with its relational aspects. The spirit of the work goes beyond singular catch phrases and one-liners, adding complexity and value which only media art and its ever widening scope can demonstrate.

It`s big art with big ideas, interwoven with micro levels of human emotion, asking questions about life and more. This two part interview aims to clarify some questions I have been wanting to ask Patrick Lichty for a while now, so hang on and lets see what happens.` M.Garrett

Raymond Depardon: Villes/Cities

12:00 am in Exhibition by bloc

Date: 30 Jun ´ 14 Aug 2010
Website: www.ffotogallery.org
Location: wales

Outline:

Ffotogallery, the national development agency for photography and lens-based media in Wales, is pleased to present Villes/Cities, a new exhibition by multi-award winning Magnum photographer and filmmaker Raymond Depardon.

Raymond Depardon’s three year project led him to twelve evolving cities around the world. In each city he lost himself in the crowd, becoming an invisible ‘picture thief’ to record unguarded images of people in streets, squares, shops, cafes and going about their everyday lives in a series of distinct locations. ´I remained a tourist a little off the beaten track, full of curiosity, but always an amateur”. Using basic cameras and with scant concern for the doctrines of technique and composition, he spent only a short time in each place to ensure that the images preserved his first impressions.

The resulting exhibition captures the movement of people within the metropolis and fascinating aspects of life, which can otherwise be taken for granted. The cities in question are Addis-Ababa, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Cairo, Dubai, Johannesburg, Moscow, New York, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Shanghai and Tokyo.

30 June ´ 14 August 2010 (opening Tues 29 June, 6.30 ´ 8.30pm). Tuesday to Saturday 11am ´ 5pm
